    Default Mossley Hill Borders

    What is the border between Mossley Hill and Allerton? Likewise, what's the dividing line with Wavertree?

    Mossley Hill is an area that spreads over parts of the old townships of Wavertree, Allerton and Garston. Technically it has no defined borders. Recently Liverpool City Council has put some district signs up for Mossley Hill having previously denied its existence but the rationale for their location is obtuse. Indeed at least one has been relocated. The only real defined boundary would be that for SS Matthew and James, and St Barnabas parish churches, both in Mossley Hill. See parish boundaries here:

    The dividing line between Allerton and Wavertree townships runs down the middle of Rose Lane.

    Hi BDM

    This one keeps cropping up in the Wavertree - Edge Hill thread, it seems it's as clear as mud

    I have the same question about ward boundaries - they are different to post code districts. It's all very confusing!

    Wards as in election/voting areas are different to postal codes as are different to districts.

    For instance the Exchange ward covers the Vauxhall district (and others) which is Liverpool 3 and 5.

    Hi Taffy

    This is interesting because where I used to live, at 76 Aigburth Hall Avenue, which we used to refer to as "Mossley Hill" is just outside the parish boundary for SS Matthew and James according to the map URL you posted. Hmmmm. Of course the old telephone numbers my family had didn't help either. The number was originally Garston 1777 and later was changed to Cressington Park 1777! And I have always been in two minds about whether the house was in Aigburth or Mossley Hill.

    All the best
