Phase 2 under construction


This major regeneration project is creating a diverse mix of 195 homes on the 13.5-acre former Walton Hospital site.

The development, off the A59 Rice Lane, brings back into use land left vacant when the hospital was demolished in August 2011 following its closure the previous year.

Working as the lead developer, Mulbury was also instrumental in gaining planning consent for an Aldi supermarket on part of the site.

Mulbury has worked with Riverside to create affordable homes in phase 1 of the development and is also working with The Sovini Group on homes for private sale as part of a second phase.

The homes have been designed to complement existing housing in the area, including the Grade II listed clock tower building which dates from the 1860s and is now residential apartments.

Walton Hospital was famous for being the place where former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney was born in 1942. The hospital was demolished in 2011 after services were transferred to Fazakerley.

Mersey Care NHS Trust’s new-build Clock View Hospital, which opened in 2015, now occupies part of the site.
