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: comments@merseytravel.gov.uk or by telephone on 0151 236 7676.


THIS IS THE  ORIGINAL POST FROM OCTOBER 2016


311 Bus

SEFTON BUS REVIEW OCTOBER 2016

From the Merseytravel Web Site –

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.


The 311 bus service through Lydiate  has been withdrawn from 30th August 2015.

Over 300 local people signed a petition, hoping to stop this service being withdrawn,

however unfortunately Lydiate has been left with no service to Ormskirk/Skem/

or Walton Church/Everton route.

KEEP Contacting Arriva North West  /Merseytravel
to pressure them to provide Lydiate with  a decent bus service.

                                      "Friends of the Abbey (St. Catherine's Chapel)"





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 :

Lydiate Notices Births, Marriages and Deaths



Ian Munro has posted this on the Lydiateworld facebook page:

Ian Munro -"I have heard that Mr Alec McGuffog who resurrected the Lydiate Youth Club , (Lambshear Lane)

 around 1966/1967 and ran it into the 70's, died on Wednesday.(14th Jan) I think he was 90. A great guy."


Ron Rigby

Very sad to hear the news of the death of Ron Rigby early this month.

Ron was 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.

R.I.P. Ron

The family lived in Lydiate at one time
