Ecclesfield: Southport’s Forgotten Suburb

Join David Walshe (Secret Sand Land) for a local history talk about his latest book, focusing on a forgotten suburb of Southport that was called Ecclesfield.

The story begins back in South Hawes & Early Southport and pays special attention to one particular branch of the Eccles family. He also looks at life in Ecclesfield during the mid/late C19th, a selection of former residents and also when & why he believes the name of Ecclesfield to have fallen out of use.

The talk will be accompanied by images from within the book.
