Wallasey My upbringing
"New Brighton - seaside town of past"
New Brighton has been a travelling spot for most people heading for the merseyside area of cheshire area of the UK. In days gone past, it was a marvelous spectacle of seaside towns and resorts all over the UK and featured a great selection of arcades, public houses, restaurants and local attractions. Since the MDC compulsary purchased most of the business's and turned half of the main street into residential houses. My personal opinion is that alot has been lost.
"NEW BRIGHTON IN THE HAY DAY"
Declined from its hayday as a popular tourist destination. The Merseyside Development Corporation thought in their infinate wisdom to close all travel lines to the local area and compulsary purchase most of the local attractions.
Not much left except from a fairground and the wilkies amusements park. Alright for a quick day out..
Before the advent of foreign package holidays, New Brighton was one of the UK’s most popular destinations. In the early part of the 20th century, the New Brighton Tower (built 1898) was a landmark that could be seen for miles around and was actually, at 621ft, taller than Blackpool Tower. Nowadays, this attractive part of Wirral is now back on the tourist map with a fine selection of attractions and events, such as the Mersey Ferries, Floral Pavilion,
