From Ford to Beechwood

room 6 ECHOES

Prenton
Take a walk through the Beechwood Estate in Birkenhead from Bidston Village to the Refurbished shops. As you walk, imagine how different this estate looked during its troubled past. No brick fronted houses with their own driveways, no floral borders, no jobs and for many, no hope. This walk is a reflection on the past and the contrast between the words and what you now see is striking.
