Its just north of Liverpool, its most famous thing is the Gormley statues on the beach and some players live there I think, I think I've read Carra lives out that way.
Yes, Carragher lives there. Loads of players have, including Gerrard, McManaman, Fowler, Henchoz. Andy Carroll  :-X Tommy Smith. Ancelotti lived there when he was taking the Bitters for millions.

Kirkby baths were brilliant too, same thing, kids pool, great big main pool and a 3 board diving pool. Think we used to do Crosby just to have a day out
Crosby baths were a great day out. Great location right next to the beach. Demolished and replaced years ago now. The new pool is smaller and the building looks like a big UFO, so makes a great picture if you use it as a backdrop to one of the iron men. Like something out of 'The Day The Earth Stood Still'.

Mind you, the original was a crumbling eyesore. The sea air absolutely ravaged it.

It's a shame LCC couldn't keep up with maintance and running costs of these great pools. What happened to Woolton Baths is a bit of a mystery, locals raised thousands of pounds for filters to help get it reopened.

Then out of the blue, without public consultation LCC put the building up for sale. Last I heard under the 'freedom of information act' people, rightly want answers to how this sale process came about and what happened to funds raised by members of the public to keep the pool open.
Was Chippy Tits the Mayor then? ::)

It's got the fantastic Crosby Plaza Cinema too, proper old school Indepenent Flicks.. Cheap to get in, free parking right outside, best Cinema (after The Woolton!) on Merseyside.



Woolton Cinema been boarded up for two years now sadly. This also despite some local fundraising. Great place that will degenerate until it has to be demolished and no doubt fancy apartments built in its place.

Bloody Hell. Go on the City thread and there's a big discussion on a North Liverpool suburb.
Old Crosby baths was great, but if I remember there was a bit of a scandal about the quality of the building. They used the wrong concrete and it couldn't cope with the sea air, which is why they knocked it down. It lasted for less than 35 years.

That's the thing about building down there, you can't skimp on the materials. You need the quality to cope with the conditions. Meanwhile, 4 miles north....

City could win the next 15 titles and itíll be less interesting than learning about Crosby in the north of Liverpool!

By talking about Crosby and the baths the quality of the subject matter of the thread has jumped fifty fold.  :D

You're right about materials. A few developments on the coast there have had problems. The flats built on the site of the old Seapoint mansion were letting water in. It even got on Granada Reports if I remember correctly. They changed the name of the development after the problems were finally sorted out.

Also, two new build closes off Burbo Bank Road had shite pointing and virtually all of them have had to be redone by the people who bought them. The wind and sea air just stripped the pointing out.

I'd comment on Abu Dhabi but there's nothing much to say other than they're still a bunch of sportswashing cheats.  :wave

Lets just hope they don't skimp on the materials further down the coast! Where's the weatherproofing money Bill?
