Crosby and Waterloo

Crosby, an affluent town with a population of about 50,000, is situated just to the north of Liverpool in the North West of England. Waterloo is an area situated on the sea coast adjacent to Crosby. From 1937 until 1974, Crosby (including Waterloo) was part of the urban district of Crosby in the county of Lancashire, which was then merged with the county borough of Bootle and the county borough of Southport to form the metropolitan borough of Sefton in the county of Merseyside.  In 1986, Sefton became a unitary authority, when the metropolitan county of Merseyside lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial county.
