When you ask most people about Liverpool, you could be forgiven for thinking that the city is only famous for its maritime history, its two successful football teams or for being the birthplace of The Beatles – but there is so much more to this amazing city than meets the casual eye.
Secret Liverpool is a gazetteer of the lesser-known places and little forgotten corners of the city, where tantalising clues to the region’s past have miraculously survived, often hidden in plain sight among newer structures.
Fully illustrated throughout with photographs and maps, this guide shows you where to go to find amazing locations that span over 3,000 years of history, from the semi-fossilised footprints of Neolithic hunters on the beaches of Formby to an amazing twentieth-century car graveyard in a disused railway tunnel.
Learn also about some of Merseyside’s forgotten heroes; discover a few select viewing points where you can see semi-permanent mirages over the Mersey skyline; find out about the long lost underground grotto and tunnels said to be still in existence somewhere beneath Princes Park ... and much more besides.
