Hello Pete,the name derives from the Lime kilns on Lime Street. They where situated on the site where Lime Street Station is today. Across the road from the kilns was the Liverpool Infirmary and they petitioned the town council to have the kilns relocated because of the ill effects on patients health.Rob AinsworthWebmaster/Programme SecretaryLiverpool History Societyhttp://www.liverpoolhistorysociety.org.uk/
