SEFTON/MERSEYTRAVEL BUS REVIEW UPDATE
Click here for the link to the revised 300 bus timetable from 23rd April 2017
Liverpool - Southport or Lydiate
Times have changed, and evening journeys have been introduced between Liverpool and Lydiate.
At the drop in event at the Meadows on Friday 29th January 2017
I was informed that the 311 Ormskirk/Walton/Liverpool route through Lydiate will not be re-instated.
The 231 circular bus from Maghull Station around Maghull to Lydiate will have a ,"last train " from Liverpool connection.
Staff were uncertain if the new Maghull North train station would have any bus linking Lydiate to it.
Contact Merseytravel with your concerns/views about Lydiate bus services at :
e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 0151 236 7676.
THIS IS THE ORIGINAL POST FROM OCTOBER 2016
A Merseytravel spokesperson said: “Following feedback from the public at the initial consultation stage
and further discussions with
councillors and bus operators,
a decision has been taken to delay the
implementation of the Sefton Bus Network Review.
This will allow for further time to assess the consultation findings.
“The proposals will now be published at a later date for people to be able to give their views.
As a result the original start date for the changes to be implemented has been moved from January 2017 to April 2017.

Over the past decade St Catherine’s Chapel (Lydiate
Abbey) has deteriorated, trees growing out of the mortar,
and loose and missing stone work. If action is not taken soon, we will lose this precious part of Lydiate’s heritage.
We have formed a group to put pressure on those responsible for the Chapel, to take action to help save and preserve our heritage.
If you would like to become involved or donate to ‘FRIENDS OF THE ABBEY’ e-mail :

sad to hear the news of the death of Ron Rigby early this month.
a well known Lydiate farmer,also a local historian, church helper
and a public speaker. Much of my information about Lydiate came
from his articles in the St. Thomas monthly magazine.
A true gentleman who will be missed.
Sad to hear of the death of Mona Duggan, local author and historian.
The family lived in Lydiate at one time
and her late husband owned Bowers Radio in Maghull for many years.
Condolences to her family.Read The Ormskirk Advertiser page about Mona here
