Litherland, Merseyside

Merseyside is a densely populated coastal county, lots of people, spirit, humour, lots to see - from land and air.

Litherland is a large residential area of north Liverpool. It is located north-east of neighbouring Bootle and close to the surrounding areas of Seaforth, Waterloo, Thornton, Great Crosby, Netherton and Orrell. Litherland has its own railway (Merseyrail) station, and is also served by other stations in the area, such as Waterloo and Orrell. The Litherland area is roughly bounded by the A565 just north of Bootle (the A565 runs from Liverpool to Southport) to the west and the A59 to the east (the A59 runs from Liverpool to Preston).

Litherland is part of a built-up (urban) area so the possible Hot Air Balloon take-off and landing locations are limited. Another concern about ballooning in this area is its proximity to the Irish Sea, and the weather than can be quite windy as a result. For these reasons, residents of Litherland may need to travel a short distance to a more suitable area to enjoy their hot air balloon flight - though do check that with your flight operator.
