The Red Hazels, Liverpool Road, Huyton, was built in 1764 and during it's long lifetime has been the residence of many wealthy people. It was at one time the home of the Misses Pilkington, members of the famous Pilkington family of glass-makers from St. Helens. The area of the Red Hazels was once the C. F. Mott Teacher Training College and was subsequently taken over by the Liverpool Polytechnic which in turn became Liverpool John Moores University. The site has again been sold and the land is now being redeveloped into the King's Business Park with the Hazels becoming a hotel.
