This is the Blue Bicycle coffee shop in Neston South Wirral. A warm welcoming place with good food. Santa has arrived early to try out the bike.
An unusual suburban development further down the Wirral at Parkgate. This is Hamilton Close designed in 1966 by J Roy Parker, president of the Liverpool Architecture society from 1974 -76. They have an oversailing timber top floor containing bedrooms and an open plan ground floor enclosed in timber and concrete brick. Kitchens overlooking the road with glazed walls facing the garden. Quite cool.
Backwood Hall further south east overlooking the Dee Estuary is quite grand late Nineteenth century farm house in the Jacobean Style. Quite elegant and self assured in its own way.
