Liverpool - Southport Line: Grosvenor Road - Hillside
(Merseyrail Northern Line)

Our journey today starts at Southport Chapel Street and follows the line to the site of the erstwhile Liverpool Exchange using Google Streetview images. Should you use the individual Google navigation tools, and wish to restore the page to its default views, just refresh the page.

As it takes a few seconds for each of the Google maps to be retrieved, the line is broken into sections, and generally these are station-to-station. Each Google Streetview image is presented facing the direction of travel, in this case southwards. 

Heading towards Hillside, Conyers Avenue parallels the railway.
