The story of these seven townships, as contained in our publications and this website, is the outcome of many years of work by the members of Mourholme Local History Society, which was formed in 1980. Indeed the work goes back beyond this date, to that undertaken by members of a Liverpool University Extension Studies course under the leadership of Paul Booth in the 1970's. These members went on to found this society, and to publish a series of books (see Publications).

This website doesn't seek to include the entire content of those books; instead a short history for each of the villages and towns is included (see tabs to the left).
