Kirkdale is a district of Liverpool, Merseyside, England and a Liverpool City Council Ward that covers both Kirkdale and Vauxhall.
It is a primarily working class
area, consisting of mainly Victorian terraced
houses. From 1885 to 1983 it was part of the Liverpool Kirkdale
Kirkdale is bordered by Bootle to the north, Walton and Everton to the east, and Vauxhall to the south. Boundary Street was an ancient division between the township of Kirkdale and Liverpool before Liverpool's expansion took in Kirkdale in the 1860's and thus separates Kirkdale and Vauxhall.
There are three railway
stations in the district, owing to its size and location near where the Merseyrail Northern Line
branches diverge. The stations are: Bank Hall
, located near the boundary with Bootle
on the branch to Southport
station itself, serving the main housing area and Sandhills
, a busy station acting as the Northern Line junction station.
