Leasowe Road turns immediately left after the gable end of Lawton’s Farm. The whitewashed cottage and red-brick buildings beyond were home to market gardeners. On the right, the thatched building in the foreground is John Lawton’s shippon and granary, next is a pig-sty, while the white thatched cottage was the home of Edward Dodd, the town’s Constable. This scene remained very much the same for decades until the close of the nineteenth century.
