Crosby, on the Irish Sea, is just five miles north of Liverpool city centre. The ancient settlement takes its name for the Norse for village with crosses.

Once part of Lancashire, this town (made up of series of villages) was developed in the 19th century as a fashionable bathing place.

For the tourist Crosby has several miles of beach, an amazing promenade, a marine lake and a number of parks.

Crosby Coastal Park is popular for sailing and bird-watching and there are good views of North Wales and excellent sunsets.

A claim to fame ? - Captain Smith, captain of the ill-fated RMS Titanic, lived in Crosby. More recently the sands here became the home of scultures of figures, created by Antony Gornley.
