Your History 5K
Sunday 2nd August
Tower & Toffee Shop sites:
The 1788 Everton Lock-Up Tower remains the heart of Everton’s badge. The old Everton Toffee Shop stood just yards away to the right on the other side of the steps from Netherfield Road South. The ‘If You Know Your History’ event will start here on Browside inside the modern Everton Park.
The Everton Toffee Shop:

Ancient Everton Village & Queen’s Head:
Everton’s original headquarters, the Queen’s Head Hotel, stood towards the top right of ancient Everton Village, captured here by artist W.G. Herdman. St Domingo’s adopted the name Everton FC here in 1879. The building was demolished in the 1960s.
Incredible View leaving Everton in Park:
Those taking part in the ‘If You Know Your History’ event will take in the greatest view in Liverpool as they exit Everton Park.
St Domingo’s Chapel:

Four Everton pitches in one image:
The route will pass or take in views of Everton FC’s four historic pitches. Under the modern football car park on Arkles Lane (top) was the original St Domingo’s pitch in Stanley Park. Across Priory Road (top) left was the club’s second pitch before the 1884 move to Anfield. Of course, historic Goodison Park has been our spiritual home since 1892 and this is where our run/walk will end.
