As you head out of Birkenhead towards Bidston and the road starts to climb, a short way down to your right you will find Flaybrick Memorial gardens, formerly Flaybrick Cemetery.
It’s history dates back to the late 1850’s, finally opening in about 1864. It ceased to be in use from the mid 1970’s and as is the way with these things care and attention was not a high priority and buildings went to ruin or were lost altogether.
Now however renamed as the Flaybrick Memorial Gardens volunteers have now taken the place under their wing and it has a more settled future. It has a peace and serenity about it as these places do. A place to contemplate, to think a little in the quiet.
