This is our coverage of Sefton.

It formed part of the new metropolitan county of Merseyside.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

The following titles are taken from the OS 25" maps and reduced to a scale of approximately 14 inches to the mile. They are extremely detailed, showing individual houses, details such as railway tracks, pathways, pubs, factories and even minutiae such as fountains and signal posts. Each covers an area of a mile and a half by one mile, and includes an introduction. Click on the links below for further details.
