Merseyside Regional History Section

Merseyside, as a regional, is rich historically.

THE information on this section covers the historical side of a world class region with many key developments in technology and world changing events that have shaped the world in which we live today. Merseyside was formed in 1974 from what was then known as South West Lancashire. The Merseyside region consists of North Liverpool and South Liverpool, Sefton, Knowsley, St Helens and  Wirral. Merseyside now has an approximate population of 1,403,381 with around 610,000 households. It has some of the richest wildlife on and off its coastline as well as the highest number of listed buildings outside of London. In 1984 Liverpool hosted the International Garden Festival and in 2008 Liverpool was selected by the European Union as the European Capital Of Culture for that year.
