  As described in "A History of Liverpool" in the year 1907

The main feature of the history of Liverpool in this period is the establishment within the borough of two great noble houses, which have been intimately connected with its fortunes ever since. One of these had already planted itself in the town before the great quarrel between the king and the burgesses. Sir John Stanley, a cadet of an ancient Cheshire family, had, towards the end of the previous century, married the heiress of Thomas of Lathom, and obtained as part of her dowry the manor of Knowsley and a patch of land in Liverpool, on the shore of the river next to the chapel, at the foot of Water Street. Stanley was a man of immense boldness and vigour, and he rapidly made himself the most powerful magnate of South Lancashire. As a reward for his services at the battle of Shrewsbury in 1403 he received large grants from the forfeited estates of the rebellious Percies. Among these was included the Isle of Man, of which the Stanleys remained kings, owing fealty to the King of England, until 1737.

Liverpool, history, liverpool-history-l8-knotts-hole-dingle-1850
Location: Liverpool

Category: history

Address: The South Shore Knotts Hole, Dingle, L.8 - 1850

  It was still relatively unspoilt in the 1950s and 60s when I knew it as the Cast Iron Shore. We would go down Dingle Vale, onto Buckland Street and turn right onto Southwood Road, cut through Priory Wood and there it was - the Cazzy.

Adventure and treasure in equal measures were spread out before us.

There was 'The Golf Links' which was full of old golf balls which we used to break open and unravel miles of thin elastic until we eventually uncovered a little rubbery ball of 'paint' which was the core of the golf ball - very good for throwing at each other.

There were 'The Old Barges' which were full of green slimy water so you had to be careful you didn't slip and fall in. The electrical wiring was still there so we could cut off lengths of it and strip off the outer covering which made great 'lazzies' for catapults.

There was 'The Woods' where we could become 'merry men' and, with the right branches make 'bows and arrows' or catapults, using the outer casings of the golf balls and the lazzies, with which we could fire the paint ball cores.

So the question remains:- was it an ex-cazzy boy from the 1950s and 60s who invented 'Paintballing'?
