Maghull, Merseyside

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

Maghull is located towards the northern edge of the Merseyside conurbation. Much of Maghull consists of residential property, including many estates of semi-detatched and detached houses built between the 1950s and 1970s. There are also many schools (which also receive pupils from surrounding areas) and business, retail, and other office premises. Maghull is close to Sefton, Netherton, Aintree and Fazakerley (to the south), Melling, Melling Mount, and Kirby (to the east), Lydiate (to the north) and Lunt (to the west).

Maghull, together with neighbouring areas north of Liverpool (such as Sefton, Aintree, Melling and Kirby) used to be popular for day-trips from Liverpool in the 1940s and 1950s when much of this area was still relatively rural. As Liverpool extended north these areas became more densely populated.

If you're lucky enough to enjoy a balloon ride in this area you'll be able to try to identify streets, schools, and other familiar landmarks from the air. Potential take-off and landing sites may include playing fields, parks, and arable land in the Lydiate area (when crops are not growing).
