Demolition of the Former ‘Garston Hotel’

Demolition of the Former ‘Garston Hotel’

The Garston Hotel was built in 1853 to serve passenger’s of the new Garston Railway Station, on the Cheshire Lines railway to Liverpool. Located on St Mary’s Road at the junction of Dock Road, alongside the railway and close to Garston Docks.

Interestingly, the Garston Way bypass (A561), Speke bound carriageway was built on the old Railway track bed.

The Garston Hotel & pub was a large and attractive stone built building, which served the people of Garston their beer for many years, until finally closing in the mid 2000’s. After which, sadly the pub was victim to several fires, thought to be caused by arsonists. Finally the Garson Hotel was finally demolished in May 2006.
