Brickworks Walton, Vauxhall or Anfield area


Hello

I was wondering if anybody could tell me if there was ever a brickworks in Liverpool, maybe around the Walton, Vauxhall or Anfield area.

It may sound strange but whilst walking with my 4 year old neice in Stanley Park one day she stated she “used to live around here but there was a brick makers then and horses”.

It would be really interesting to find out if there was indeed a brickmakers within the vicinity. Any information would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Julie

  1. Hello,

    I only have maps that go as far as Sleepers Hill for 1843 and there are no Brick makers or more correctly brick fields in this area.

  3. A bit late I know but I’ve only just come across this query.
    There were numerous brick works and brick fields around Liverpool at one time but particularly in the Kirkdale area to the north, the Dingle/Toxteth Park in the south and Wavertree to the east.

    The closest brick field and brick works to Stanley Park were situated along the railway line on either side of Utting Avenue, to the south of Anfield Cemetery.

    The brickfields lie beneath what is now the north end of Ince Avenue, Stanley Park Avenue South, Bidston Road and Frankby Road, as well as all of Craine Close, Pine Lodge, Ayrshire Road, Moffatdale Road and Ardrossan Road. South of Utting Avenue the brickfields covered Hildebrand Road, Hildebrand Close, Berwyn Road, Corwyn Road, Sherwyn Road, Hilary Road and Hilary Close.

    These brickfields, one including a brick kiln, are shown on the 1893 OS map.

    The map also shows 12 dwellings known as Brickfield Cottages on the site of present day 35-65 Hildebrand Road.
