40th anniversary of reopening of Tam O’Shanter Cottage Field Study Centre
May 2017 marks 40 years since Tam O’Shanter Cottage was rebuilt and opened as a Field Study Centre for Bidston Hill. It was under threat of demolition after several attacks by vandalism and fire, but Birkenhead History Society stepped in and started a campaign to save it. A selection of press cuttings from that time, including a picture of the burnt-out wreck of the cottage prior to rebuilding, is on display in the activity room. A plaque high up on the end wall commemorates the official reopening, and a folder by the display shows pictures of the cottage when it was lived in and part of a smallholding. There is also a list of names of some of the people involved in the rebuilding; perhaps there is someone there who is known to you?
