Most popular maps
These first maps are great for local and family history research.
Find a street, read about one of Liverpool’s historic townships, or lookup a church and parish, as things stood in the 19th century.
Townships in England are local divisions or districts, smaller than a hundred.
Looking at Liverpool, they conveniently coincide with the well known village centres and suburbs that we know today. This map lets you explore the local histories of these places, as well as the centre of Liverpool itself.
Other interactive maps
These other maps are more specific, and so are worth spending some time browsing.
The maps are often made up of data made by heritage organisations, and the sources are linked to where appropriate, so you can make your own version of the map!
Clicking on the dots on the map sometimes takes you to the source too, so they’re a great jumping-off point for local or family history research.
