Travelling around Netherton
Sitting in Merseyside, in the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton, you’ll discover the small but charming Netherton.
Mostly residential, the area is also home to the semi-rural Netherton Village. A close community, this is a place with an interesting history, popular housing and a number of everyday amenities.
With two railway stations and excellent road links, Netherton is well-served when it comes to public transport. This includes a number of Arriva bus services that run regularly to the City of Liverpool, and open up areas like Bootle, Fazakerley, Crosby and Walton Vale.
This ancient township was an independent civil parish in the 1800s. Historically located in Lancashire, it has been part of the Sefton Metropolitan Borough area since 1974.
Netherton was built upon a number of housing estates. The main estate, Marian Square, was developed to accommodate housing shortages in the 1950s, following heavy bombing in World War Two. An estimated 17,000 of the 18,000 houses in nearby Bootle were either damaged or destroyed.
