Halewood

The township of Halewood lies between the old course of Ditton Brook in the north and Rams Brook in the south, both running into the Mersey. Disputes over the manor lands of Halewood between the Ireland and Holland families began in the 13th Century and continued through the medieval period.

Throughout the post medieval period, the township was mainly agricultural which continued until the 1960s when the suburban sprawl of Liverpool began to envelope the west end of Halewood. Today, Halewood is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Knowsley. Though not officially part of Liverpool, it marks the southern edge of the city's urban area, being bordered by the southern suburbs of Hunts Cross, Woolton and Speke. However, people from Halewood still regard themselves as from Liverpool, as many of them were moved there from the city anyway. Halewood is home to a massive Ford Motor Company production facility which today produces the Jaguar X-Type and the Land Rover Freelander. Everton Football Club have recently opened their extensive modern training facilities and youth academy on Finch Lane Farm site.

Parts of Halewood village still retains some of its former Victorian character with its open aspects, green areas and well spaced buildings. There are many fine houses and farms to see in Halewood, including The Hayes - the main house of which has a builder's stone dated 1867. Other historic houses include Foxhill House and farm, Wellcroft Cottages, Brook House, Harefield/Ashton Hey, and Irelands Farm. St Nicholas Church is a Gothic style, Grade II listed building and displays pew boxes and stained glass designed by William Morris. The old rectory has an attractive late Georgian frontage and retains the original pattern of windows.
