Restoration of 1920's Cheshire Railings in Heswall
Members of Mid Wirral have undertaken a project to clear the bushes that had overgrown the 1920's railings at the junction of Barnston and Brimstage Road and paint the railings to restore them to their former glory.
Mid Wirral members have undertaken a project to reveal and restore the 1920's "Cheshire Railings" at the corner intersection of Brimstage and Barnston Road.
These railings were installed at all sharp bends in the mid 1920's as an early form of crash barrier illustrated by the rolled over top of the railings.
After clearing the overgown bushes the railings will be painted in the original black and white colours. The sight lines for traffic entering this junction from Brimstage Road is now much improved after clearing the overgrowth.
Take a careful look at the small plaque displayed behid the railings next time you walk past and read the dedication:
"These Pine Woods were presented to the Parish of Gayton in the year 1930 by R H Hooper Esq. of Gayton for the use of the Public in perpetuity"
Then take a walk in the Pine Woods and rest on one of the numerous benches that Mid Wirral members have put up in the woods in the same spirit of R H Hooper Esq.
To celebrate the cleared area the members installed and decorated a lit Christmas tree kindly donated by Claremont Farm
