Welcome to our Website.
THE WEST DERBY SOCIETY IS HOLDING ITS MONTHLY MEETINGS AT
Lowlands, 13 Haymans Green, West Derby
The West Derby Society, Liverpool, was founded in 1977 and holds regular monthly meetings at Lowlands, a beautiful Grade II-listed 1846 merchantís mansion set in a rare Victorian city woodland garden.
The Society - registered with the Civic Trust - seeks to protect and promote the history and heritage of West Derby, an ancient community older than Liverpool. We are actively involved in planning and environmental issues in the area.
We meet at 7.30 pm on the third Wednesday of each month except during the summer. All are welcome. In June we have an evening outing and in July a day trip. There are no meetings in August. The annual subscription is £8 which includes a free quarterly newsletter. Under-18s have free membership.
Our meetings are lively and include a discussion and update on West Derby issues followed by a guest speaker. Recent topics have ranged from Liverpool John Lennon Airport and taxidermy to the Mole of Edge Hill and protecting wildlife!
We hope you enjoy our website and welcome any comments or requests for help with queries about West Derbyís fascinating history and remarkable buildings.
