    LONDEHAY was mentioned as early as 1489, and is now the Rose Hill area of Southport, by Forest Road Bridge. It was previously known as Little London, and Merchants came from London to collect the fleeces of wool from North Meols, which were stored in the Tithebarn at Tithebarn Lane. The Anchor Inn was at the heart of Little London, now the Blue Anchor Pub, where the pallbearers stopped to rest when carrying coffins along Little London Lane. A 6ft. slab, 3 metres off the ground, stood outside the Inn to put the coffin on, while they had a drink. By 1880, Little London became known as St. Luke’s, probably after the Church was built xxx

    They'd need more than a few drinks to get a coffin on a slab three metres up!

    Interesting. Is Little London Lane now Sussex Road or Hart Street?

    Surely it should be 3 feet high. Either that or there were a lot of very tall pall bearers around in those days !
