‘The History of the Big Houses of View Road, St James Road & Lawton Road, Rainhill’
Guest Speaker: Tom Preston
Tuesday 16th June 2015
In June we welcomed back Tom Preston, local historian and member of the Rainhill Civic Society, to tell us about the ‘Houses of the Lawton Estate’ and the history of the big houses, the owners and their families living there.
It was a fascinating insight into the past of this part of our beloved Rainhill and to hear the stories of the ‘rise & fall’ of some of the property owners. Thank you Tom.
