The Links was built beside an ancient footpath, traces of which can still be identified running fron Nant Y Gammar to the West Shore.    So if any one was inside The Links drinking Ye Old John Willy Lees then the planks were inside the links too!

The ancient footpath to West Shore is called Maesdu Road now Hugo.  L0L

This is a map of the Walton area of Liverpool, in the 1960's.

Where will you find Owen and William Owen?

Owen and William Owen were a family of builders, called Owen and William Owen Elias, they were father and son and built streets in Walton, Liverpool that spelt out the name of their firm in alphabetical order.   ZXZ

And I claim the prize!    :P

Lady Augusta built the Links in the middle of boggy marsh land and as a result the locals had to get to the pub walking on PLANKS of wood.

Conway Road was opened in 1844 yet Sam Hughes didn't open the Links until 1898 so the main road had been open for 54 years so why walk on planks unless you've had a skinful of that awful John Willy Lees beforehand.

You could have shown everyone how to read the name of the Welsh building firm:

Start to the left of Goodison Park (Everton's ground) with Oxton Str, then go up to Arnot Str. On the other side of County Road, continue with Makin Str, up to Nixon Str. The name of the firm is spelt backwards.

N-ixon Str
E-uston Str
W-eldon Str
O-lney Str
M-akin Str
A-rnot Str
I-ndex Str
L-owell Str
L-ind Str
I-smay Str
W-illburn Str
D-ane Str
N-imrod Str
A-ndrew Str
N-eston Str
E-ton Str
W-inslow Str
O-xton Str

Now that the day is over I can reveal that the signature is that of none other than the famous Guy Fawkes himself, who failed so miserably to do what many of us wished someone would do!!     L0L   L0L
