The last race was held on 17 December 2010 before developers took ownership to build a multi-million dollar housing estate; including Forest Lodge.

Glebe has a long history dating back to eighteenth century! The Church of England was given 400 acres in 1790; the land was subdivided in 1828 and George Allen purchased 96 acres. It was only a few years later, in 1831, that George built his Toxteth Park mansion, which still stands today as part of St Scholastica’s College.
George Allen, along with his children and their partners, went on to develop and build upon the land he purchased and a lot of these properties still stand today. If you’d like to find out more, check out The Glebe Society inc or visit Glebe Walks.
