Sefton is one of the most variegated boroughs in the land. It encompasses two former boroughs: the industrial seaport Bootle at one end and the genteel seaside resort of Southport at the other. In between stretches beautiful coastline, home to six links courses including championship Birkdale. The rural hinterland is the setting for grand country houses and the tiny village of Sefton, which gives its name to the borough.

Sefton in 50 Buildings explores the history of this vibrant city through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the Gothic Revival church of St Helen's to the modernist St Monica's in Bootle, and from Crosby Hall, built in the early seventeenth century on a grand scale, to Southport's distinguished pier, this study celebrates Sefton’s architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Join Hugh Hollinghurst as he guides the reader on a tour of the borough’s historic buildings and architectural marvels.
