Back to the 1958 Ordnance Survey map of Liverpool that I picked up for a song recently.

The railways are the fascinating thing for me. Just look what was still in place back then compared with now. The Cheshire Lines loop around Liverpool is the big change. Lost stations on that line include Gateacre (lasted until April 1972), Childwall (closed January 1931), Knotty Ash (closed November 1960), West Derby (closed November 1960) and Clubmoor (closed November 1960). The line inself was closed in August 1975.

A good easy to refer to book about Liverpool’s railway stations is:-

Rob Gell’s ‘An illustrated Survey of Liverpool’s Railway Stations 1830 – 1985’
