About Crosby

In the 10th century both Great Crosby and Little Crosby were Viking villages. They have now become suburbs of Liverpool, with little or nothing to remind of their ancient past.

Interestingly, the Whitlock-Blundell family who lived at Crosby Hall where descendents of a Saxon Warrior called Blondell, he fought at the Battle of Hastings.

Modern day Crosby straddles the Irish Sea, it is a mainly residential area with a coastline of sands - including the Blundell Sands, thus named for the Blundell family. There is an attractive marina catering for boating pursuits, several parks, with lovely Ince Woods being the perfect place to stroll enjoying both fresh air and wildlife.

The town is noted for its well established independent schools, these are the Merchant Taylor's Scholl and St.Mary's College and the town is the home of the Carnegie Library built by American steel magnate Andrew Carnegie.

One of the most historic, interesting features of Crosby is that this was once the home of the ill-fated ship "Titanic".

Visitors to the town will find a plentiful supply of shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants.

Crosby lies around seven miles from the vast City of Liverpool, with its two great cathedrals, museums, galleries, shops and bright lights.
