History

St Mary's Church in Grassendale opened in August 1853.

Description

Grassendale is a prestigious, almost entirely residential suburb, which consists of large, expensive and detached 19th century villas. The area is particularly green, and the houses are set well back from the road. This district retains classic-style streetlamps which give the area a traditional feel.

Among the residences, is Grassendale House, with 20 acres of land, the property of George Hargreaves, Esq., who is also owner of Beach Lawn, occupied by W.J. Marrow, Esq.; and at Grassendale is the villa of J. Grant Morris, Esq.
—From: 'Gargrave - Gatenby', A Topographical Dictionary of England (1848), pp. 279-282.[1]

Grassendale Park and Cressington Park were designated as conservation areas on 13 November 1968.[2] The ward, which contains both parks and the housing, is called Cressington. Otterspool Promenade is located nearby and runs along the bank of the River Mersey from just north of Garston Docks to Otterspool Park.

Transport

Cressington railway station is located in the centre of the district, providing Northern Line (Merseyrail) services to Southport, Liverpool and Hunts Cross.
