This week I came across a small ad in the Liverpool Mercury for 7 May, 1852. The note tells about sale of land up at Anfield. Four different lots are up for sale. I believe “lot 4” might be a reference to the ground where the football stadium is today.
Plot 4 reads:
“All that Field or Close of LAND, situate on the east of Walton-breck-road, and west side of Anfield-lane, being of an angular form, and known by the name of “Front Field,” containing 1 a. 3 r. 14 p. stature measure, more or less.”
