Almost all the old maps on this site can be bought as high quality prints, great for framing, and as a present!
There’s also the book – Liverpool: a landscape history, also available to buy from this website.
Some maps to help you dive into Liverpool’s history.
- Explore the suburbs and historic townships
- Search for the long-gone old streets of Liverpool where your ancestors lived
- Look up churches, parishes, listed buildings and more
Explore the local histories of the ‘townships’, as well as the centre of Liverpool itself.
All the parishes in the Liverpool area and slightly beyond, as they were in 1851. There are also some Anglican churches from the era.
You can see details about when they were built (and demolished) where that information is known.
All of Liverpool’s most important architecture, with a search tool to boot.
Data comes from Historic England, the government body responsible for protecting the Listed Buildings in England.
