Huyton Towntrail - Part 2

Returning to the Church, turn left into Huyton Lane past the vicarage where we find on our left, Huyton Cricket and Bowling Club which was founded in 1860. On the opposite side of Huyton Lane, facing the cricket field stands Thornton Leigh formerly Thornton Cottage. Alongside this is an ancient pathway known centuries ago as the Corpse Way or more recently as the 'cinder path', along which inhabitants of Tarbock in past times, brought their dead to Huyton Parish Church for burial. Follow this footpath to the end and turn right into Victoria Road. Near the end of this road at its junction with Seel Road, stands the United Reform Church, formerly the Congregational Church built in 1890.
