Below are links to help us explore maps


                     Ones from our local area

  so that we can see how Southport has changed.

Detective task

Use the close up map of the area around what would be the school in the 1840s.

Print out a copy of it.

Try to add features from today in their correct places (use the railway lines to help you). The 1880s map and Googlemaps will help too:

The school....our church....Lidl...Hampton Road and its footbridge over the railway...The Blue Anchor pub...South Garden Chinese takeaway

Some of the roads have changed their names. See if you can label where the following are -

Eastbank Street....Scarisbrick New Road...Virginia Street...Ash Street...Cemetery Road

Any of the residential streets near us that had not been built like

Arbour Street, Hargreaves Street, Hodson Street, Southbank Road,

Sefton Street, Linaker Street

Extracts from the above map of Southport from the 1840s 

The first is an overview and the second is the area around what would be come the site of the school. There is no Hampton Road yet! 

Below is a map showing how much Southport had grown by the 1880s -  just 40 years later.

The second map is a close up of the area around the school.
