Mapping the history of Liverpool

Welcome to the site which lets you explore old maps of Liverpool, find out more about the historic features in your back yard, and take away a souvenir of Liverpool's past!

Old Maps

There are a growing number of interactive maps, reproductions of maps of Merseyside from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. You can zoom in to see great detail, and buy a copy for yourself, or a fellow Liverpool lover!

History Map

The main attraction on Historic Liverpool is the History Map.

This interactive and zoomable map lets you zoom in to your chosen place and see all the places of interest. You'll see hidden bits of history that you might never have noticed, or an old stone monument you may always have wondered about.

There is everything from prehistoric footprints on Formby beach to the courthouse in West Derby village. I'm always adding new things to this map, so jump in!

The Historic Liverpool Blog

The Historic Liverpool blog is where you can find an assortment of posts which don't fall in to the other categories that you'll see around this site. There are book reviews, events, and other little historic details which are there in Liverpool's historic landscape for you to find.

Feel free to comment or ask questions, and I'll see what I can do to help!
