Tarbock and Tarbock Green

Tarbock, named after a local brook has seen many variations of spelling before settling for the current one.

This small selection of photographs were taken during my walks around Tarbock and Tarbock Green.



An Autumn Walk

Walking through Stadt Moers Park you can't help but notice the changing colours of autumn contrasting to those of summer.   

With the exception of the last 4 photographs taken on the morning of 31/10/2020 in Dukes Clough, Rainhill, the remainder are of Stadt Moers Park taken on the morning of 28/10/2020.

There is very little narrative in this album, I thing the photographs say it all. 




A small selection pf photographs taken as I have walked through the village and the surrounding district.  There are other pictures of buildings in the village that could have been added had I passed by them on my walks. 




Around Rainhill


Rainhill in Lancashire was the site of the 1829 Rainhill Locomotive Trials held on the new Liverpool and Manchester Railway and won by the Rocket designed by George Stephenson.

Rainhill also boasts the Skew Bridge, it is the world's first bridge to cross over a railway at an angle and the Liverpool Manchester Railway the world's first inter-city passenger railway service that runs through the village


Stadt Moers (Country) Park, Lancashire

Stadt Moers Park covers more than 220 acres in Whiston and Huyton with, meadow, woodland and pond habitats, with a network of footpaths and tracks. The area had a long history of coal mining, before Tushingham's Brickworks was built in the 1890s. By 1976 the works were derelict and much of today's park was used as a landfill site for domestic refuse.

In the early 1980’s the Groundwork Trust and Knowsley Council created Stadt Moers Park, naming it after Knowsley’s Twin town of Moers in Germany.

The Park is divided into four 'areas' by the Liverpool to Manchester Railway and M57 Motorway.

1 - Pluckington, 2 - Pottery Fields, 3 - Wet View and 4 - Tushingham.
