About the area
Woolton Village was incorporated into the City of Liverpool in 1913, but it retains is own unique history.
It is a prestigious suburb, mostly consisting of semi-detached and detached dwellings, although some well-preserved terraces survive.
The area was referred to as Uluentune in the Domesday Book, with the name translating as “farm of Wulfa”. Shortly after the Domesday survey, which was completed in 1086, Woolton became part of the Barony of Halton and Widnes. In 1189, a charge was granted by John, Constable of Chester, to the order of Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, a religious order who protected the routes for Christians who were on a pilgrimage to The Holy Land. These Knights Hospitallers held land in Woolton for over 350 years, until it was confiscated from them in 1559 by Queen Elizabeth I. The manorial rights to Woolton passed from Queen Elizabeth to James I who sold them to William Stanley, 6th Earl of Derby. Woolton then passed to Isaac Green, and through his daughter to her son Bamber Gascoyne of Childwall (MP for Liverpool 1780-96 and an ancestor of Bamber Gascoigne who hosted University Challenge for many years), and is now owned by the Marquess of Salisbury.
The area has a number of pubs, including The White Horse, The Cobden, The Victoria, The Grapes and The Elephant as well as many upmarket restaurants.
Many Beatles landmarks can be found in Woolton, including Mendips (Lennon’s childhood home at 251 Menlove Avenue) and Strawberry Field. Another one of Woolton’s claims to fame is that John Lennon and Paul McCartney first met at St. Peter’s garden fete on 6 July 1957. (Credit: Wikipedia)
