Sefton Jewish Community
Metropolitan Borough of Sefton
Sefton is a metropolitan borough in the county of Merseyside in the North West of England. It was created in 1974 upon the merger of several authorities (all then in the county of Lancashire), including the county borough of Bootle (just to the north of Liverpool and considered part of its urban area), the urban district of Crosby (to the north of Bootle and also generally considered part of Liverpool's urban area) and the county borough of Southport (a seaside town further to the north). In 1986, Sefton became a unitary authority, when the metropolitan county of Merseyside lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial county.
