photoblog image Hackins Hey

Hackins Hey


Hackins Hey is one of the medieval lanes of Liverpool, and many people lived in this narrow alley at the end of the eighteenth century, although the yellow lines are a more recent addition.

The trade directories show that between 1787 and 1805 victuallers were the most prominent residents, both men and women being listed, as well as many shopkeepers and craftsmen. The pub, 'Ye Old Hole in the Wall' has been here since the mid-eighteenth century.

Some fine old buildings here Les. I like the contrast with the characterless modern building at the end and the ubiquitous yellow lines!

It speaks of olden times - like Ye hole in ye wall.

Great one
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, appreciate the comment.
Nice old buildings Les contrastimg with the hideous modern one at the back. Why is everywhere picturesque despoiled with yellow lines these days.
Les Auld: I suppose it keeps someone in a job painting them Brian, thanks for the comment.
What great buildings. Love the subdued tones, Les. (:o)
Les Auld: They do have some character Rosalyn, thanks for the comment.

The old and the new. I know which I prefer and it's certainly not the new!

Love the character in the architecture
Les Auld: So do I floog, thanks for the comment.
There's a right mixture of building styles here. Ye hole in ye wall looks worth a visit!!!
Les Auld: It was closed when I went past Bill, maybe one day. Thanks for the comment.
