    Huyton was an area that expanded rapidly after the war and mentioned in Doomsday 900 years ago. The name derived from the Anglo Saxon 'heath' and 'turn', meaning an elevated enclosure or farmstead.

    Rubble from the Olive Mount railway cutting was used to create the huge 2 mile long embankment carrying the Liverpool-Manchetser line through Roby and Huyton.

    There's a Parish Church (St. Micheal) that dates from 1663.

    In 1931 Huyton had a population of 5,198. Today it is around 58,000.

    Thats all I have to say about that.....

    Sack your researcher Kev

    I've got history going back as far as 1552 for St Michael's Huyton:

    1552: “iiij bells whereof ij as the said churche wardens do alledge be unpaid foure . . . MN the said iiij belles were boght of the Kyngs Mrts cōmyssions.”

    Plus, the heaviest bell in the tower has just celebrated its 400th birthday in 2006

    Hey LeeLad05, you don't live far from me, I live in the Stockbridge Village area, ok my area deosn't have the best reputation but it's ok really.

    Another thing about Huyton is that the actor Rex Harrison is from there.
