An aerial view of Huyton. In the left foreground are some of the mid 19th Century villas which once formed part of Huyton College. The railway line, once part of the Liverpool-Manchester Railway (the first passenger railway in the world) continues as a major commuter link into Liverpool city centre. Just above the railway is the recently completed bus terminus supplying road services throughout Knowsley Borough. The central portion is dominated by the shopping centre with Derby Road barely discernable amongst the modern structures. The tall building in the centre is the Municipal Buildings and behind it running across the photograph is Archway Road.
The three roads you can see in the upper portion of the photograph are (from left to right) Rupert Road, Casino Road and to the right Blue Bell Lane with the Huyton Parish church dedicated to St Michael. To the right, leading back down to the railway, is Lathom Road. On it you can see a large supermarket, Sherborne Square and the multi-storey car park.
