Spital

Virgin Voyager heads North

A Perfect Place to Visit

Spital is a convenient station for BROTHERTON PARK and DIBBINSDALE LOCAL NATURE RESERVE. They comprise over 80 acres of semi-natural countryside along the river valley of the Dibbin and comprise the largest and one of the finest examples of ancient woodland on Merseyside.

Just two minutes away by train is PORT SUNLIGHT station which is close to BROMBOROUGH POOL.

The houses of Bromborough Pool were built for the workers of Price’s Candle Works during the 1850s. They were a model factory village with allotments, a village hall and school. Almost a ‘first’ in their day, the houses all had indoor flushing lavatories. Each day at Price’s started with ten minutes of prayer – five minutes in company time and five in the employees.

By the 1980s Bromborough Pool Village had long since ceased to serve its original function and some of its houses, which had become surplus to requirements over the years, had already been demolished. Fortunately, local residents formed their own historical society and persuaded the Council in 1984 to put a Conservation Order on the village that helped to save the remaining buildings.

The BROMBOROUGH POOL HERITAGE TRAIL begins at the end of South View, near Pool Lane and Uniqema's car park, and continues around the village. The trail covers the themes of "The Wilson Family" (the founders of the factory and the village), "The Village Site," "The Factory," "The Village," "Village Life," "The Greens," "Healthy Living and Hospitals," and "Clubs and Societies."
