New Developments at allertonOak

Issue 2017/4 (18th October 2017)
I have converted Allerton into a standard new-style merseySights page that can be read independently of the much more comprehensive A History of Allerton and Mossley Hill feature in merseyThemes. Two more pages given the new-style treatment are Wavertree and Everton.
The Origin of Local Place Names has been given a comprehensive overhaul. A reader sent me some very interesting documents and photos concerning Elmswood Hall that I have incorporated into A History of Allerton and Mossley Hill.
Issue 2017/3 (30th May 2017)
I've now completed the rewrite of the Central Liverpool merseySights pages with
The North Docks and Vauxhall, The Waterfront and The South Docks. These new-style pages have much more history supported by old writings, maps and illustrations. There are many more newly taken photographs as well. I've also done a big update to Toxteth including the Dingle, St. Michaels and Otterspool, mainly to cover the Toxteth dock system - new photos here too.
There is a new walk,
Liverpool Docks and Waterfront, to go with the new merseySights pages. This will help you to piece together the past of Liverpool's riverside and discover its heritage.
Issue 2017/2 (17th April 2017)
There are significant updates and extensions to
Toxteth and The Town Centre. A number of other pages have had more minor updates.

There is a new and more extended walk for
Liverpool Town Centre and Museum Area.

Part of the
Lost Rivers of Liverpool feature has been considerably extended.
Issue 2017/1 (3rd January 2017)
I have moved allertonOak to a new web hosting service provider; there were some initial glitches but all seems OK now.

There are now seven greatly expanded new-style pages identified by an asterisk (*) on merseySights:
The Commercial Quarter, The Museum Area, The Town Centre, The Georgian Quarter, Toxteth, Wavertree and Allerton.

There are now five new-style walks identified by an asterisk (*) on merseyWalks:
The South Liverpool Green Wedge, Mossley Hill and Sefton Park, The Pier Head to Otterspool, Liverpool Commercial Quarter and Liverpool Cathedrals and Georgian Quarter.
