    You've got:

    1 - Woolton Ridge which gives you Childwall Valley
    2 - Olive Mount
    3 - Mossley Hill
    4 - High Park
    5 - Everton Valley
    6 - Everton Brow which leads to Everton Valley

    They seem to be the main ones.

    Camp Hill is in Woolton - comes from the Saxon settlement there though there's no trace of it now - the place is excellent for sledging in the winter when we get some snow and you're a big kid!

    A rare pic showing how steep Everton Brow is.

    Another unusual shot showing off the hill. The two cathedrals look they've been copied and pasted on to the pic but I can assure you they weren't

    Looking towards Everton Brow. Taken last week. St George's Church (The "Cast Iron Church"), Heyworth Street is visible in the far left, top of the pic.

    What about Walton On The Hill.

    .... heading from Rice lane - city bound - under the flyover .. still going up hill onto County rd (Walton church to the left) .. down County rd towards Walton rd and Everton Valley.

    Sometimes it's not realised that there is an incline there. The flyover hides the hill there.

    It looks like Liverpool has more than 7 hills.
    Isn't it the Seven Hills of Rome?

    Wonderful pics as usual Scouserdave!

    Camp Hill dates back further than Saxon times to the Iron Age, and appears to have been a hill fort similar to others around the British Isles, although I don't believe this has been confirmed by archaeology. If it was such a fort, it thus would have been contemporary with the Helsby Hill Iron Age fort across the Mersey.
