DGB Solicitors have moved to new offices in Hoylake, a lovely seaside town located at the north western corner of the Wirral Peninsula. Located where the River Dee estuary meets the Irish Sea, Hoylake is an ideal location for DGB Solicitors with its maritime links.
We understand from local history sites that the present day township was originally part of the small fishing village of Hoose. The name Hoylake apparently derived from Hoyle Lake, a channel of water between Hilbre island and Dove Point providing safe anchorage for ships too large to sail up the River Dee to Chester. In 1690 we are told that William III set sail from Hoylake to Ireland with a 10,000-strong army, where his army was to take part in the Battle of the Boyne. The location of departure remains known today as Kings Gap.
As well as being renowned for its beaches, present day Hoylake is famous for its prestigious Royal Liverpool Golf Club which has hosted major tournaments such as the
Walker Cup and the Open. In July it will be hosting the 2014 Open Golf Championship with its array of famous faces; who knows who we may get a glimpse of!
Everyone at DGB Solicitors is thrilled with our new moorings. Please take note of our new address, featured on our new website, and adjust your co ordinates.
