Local History

What’s in a Name? By John Bruce


ur busy area, where we live and work, is now the Liverpool City Council ward of Old Swan, but was once just a leafy, muddy crossroads on the main route out of the city. It ran from the Port of Liverpool, stretching towards the East through the more ancient township of Prescot and onto the farming land of Lancashire and many days horse journey to London.

The name Old Swan stayed, and the famous resident historian James Hoult describes the view from Old Swan Hill as it would have been in 1800: “At the top would be found a village picturesquely situated, and commanding extensive views of Liverpool…” The original Old Swan Inn was a stopping place for stage coaches and was described as, “an extensive establishment.” Before the invention of the car, stage coaches would be a regular feature along these tracks pulled by four galloping horses. It would take a boneshaking four days to travel from Liverpool to London, with lots of stops at coaching inns to change over the exhausted horses. For these tired travellers the name Old Swan represented the start of their journey from Liverpool to the lands beyond.

The land around here was in the hands of the Walton family, of Walton-on-the-Hill, a wealthy and powerful bunch, with other lands in Ireland and Somerset as well as around South Lancashire. Their badge depicted three swans. It was customary for the local public house to be named in deference to the land owner. So perhaps our area should really be called the ‘Three Swans’! The hamlet developed around the earliest coaching house in the area, located on the corner of Prescot Road and Pettycoat Lane (now Broadgreen Road), and on Yates and Perry’s map of 1768 it was called ‘The Old Swan’. This early inn was later replaced by ‘The Red House’ building, which still stands a major landmark on the junction and is now a Costa Coffee Shop. The current Old Swan’ pub (originally the ‘Swan Vaults’), and the Cygnet were later additions.

Old Swan Amateur Boxing Club Interview with Paul Moran


ucked behind Old Swan junction is the old fire station, now the home of Old Swan Amateur Boxing Club. Although being fairly new to the scene, the club attracts people of all ages and abilities and already boasts a footfall of around 400 people a week. We quizzed the coaches about the how the club runs. When and why was Old Swan Amateur Boxing Club established? The club was officially established in March 2017 and was in the planning for a few years before hand. We officially became registered with the Amateur Boxing Association in March and have not looked back since. We set it up through a love of the sport, a love of the area and a group of friends wanting to share our skills and make a positive impact in Old Swan. Who are the coaches? We have a club committee and the chairman is Francis Harding. Fran is a former amateur boxing champion and professional boxer with years of experience. We also have Fran’s father Billy Harding who is our head coach. Billy has been in and around boxing for probably 50 years and has forgotten more about boxing than I will ever know. We then have 2 former boxers in Dean Roy and Tony Swift who attend through the week. We then have 5 other coaches Leon Farley, Liam Fortune, Eddie Serrano, Tony Mc and myself who love the sport and coach all levels and ages through the week. Who is the club for? The club is aimed at all residents of Old Swan and beyond. We have classes through the week to fit any age and ability. We welcome anyone to come and train and have patrons of all ages from all communities in the area. The only thing we ask is that the principles of the sport are followed: respect and discipline.


What have been the biggest challenges in setting the club up? As with all new ventures and businesses the start-up costs can be a big challenge. We are very lucky to have had help from a few very generous sponsors and a very kind landlord. We continue to fundraise to improve our equipment and environment. Who inspires your work at the club? We are inspired by the young kids who come through the door as nervous children and then grow into confident young people. It is amazing to see the journey that some children who have various problems go through in just a few months in the club and the feedback we get from parents is amazing. It is also great to see adults coming in who haven’t exercised for years, losing weight, getting fit both physically and mentally and giving feedback about how the training has helped all areas of their life. What would you like to say to someone who is looking for fitness help but nervous about boxing? Come in and see us! Everyone has their own different needs based on fitness, age, experience, goals, weight and available time. What we recommend is come in and get your first session free and go through an assessment. Once you meet the team and see the club in action you will want to be a member forever. What is the best way for anyone interested to find out club info? Come in between 4pm and 6pm any evening and speak to one of the coaches. We can also be contacted through Facebook on our club page for any questions search: “Old Swan Amateur Boxing Club” or telephone us, our number is 07739 316 261.

Keep Your Smile Sweet O ld Swan dentist Stuart Garton is backing a new campaign by Public Health, Liverpool City Council called ‘Save Kids from Sugar’ which spotlights the high levels of sugar in popular children’s branded breakfast cereals and drinks.

“They often need to go under general anaesthetic to have the baby teeth removed, which can be very traumatic for them and their families. Oral surgery at such a young age can cause problems such as gums sealing over when baby teeth are removed, delaying adult teeth coming through.”

Stuart says many more children coming to his practice need to have rotten teeth removed before they even start school. He is warning of a vicious circle as children, forced to have surgery, may be put off from visiting the dentist in the future.

Stuart, a dad of two young children, says: “I’m really encouraged that Liverpool City Council is committed to this issue as I’m sure it will have a big impact.”

To help parents see how much sugar their child is having each day, Public Health Liverpool has launched a new website featuring a Sugar Check. The tool enables parents to choose which breakfast cereals, drinks and snacks their child has on a typical day and works out how much sugar their child is consuming. Sugary drinks are one of the biggest sources of sugar in children’s diets. Some drinks have more than 13 sugar cubes in them. Add this to a sugary breakfast cereal and snacks during the day and some children could be consuming the equivalent of 20 sugar cubes each day. Some popular children’s cereals also contain more than three and a half sugar cubes in a small serving – resulting in children having more than half of their daily sugar allowance before they even get to school. All this sugar can cause tooth decay, leading to pain, sleepless nights and days off school as well as obesity and other health problems later in life. “Tooth decay is such a preventable problem but unfortunately the situation isn’t getting any better,” said Stuart, principal dentist at the Dental House in Old Swan. “When you are seeing children of just three and four with up to eight or nine decayed teeth, it has to be because the amount of sugar in their diet and it is very sad to see.


Stuart recommends the following tips to help parents reduce their children’s sugar intake: • Offer children water or semi skimmed milk rather than fizzy drinks, cordials and fruit juice. (Liverpool’s tap water comes from Lake Vyrnwy in Wales and has a quality and purity to rival top selling waters) • The sugar found in sugary drinks, including fruit juice can cause tooth decay • The acid found in all soft drinks, including diet and ‘no added sugar’ may cause enamel damage • If you choose sugary or diet drinks have these with meals • Read labels and don’t buy high sugar foods and drinks – if they’re not in the house, young children can’t consume them.
