Hi,

Has anyone any information on the Toxteth Dingle (valley & brook), [where] "Once a Naiad rolled her flood..." ?

The brook no longer exists but the lady naiad was celebrated with a statue - which has also disappeared it seems.

Are there any book references for the story of this lady of the stream please?

Thanks,

Ric
