TV Mike Royden's Local History Pages
Mike Royden has been researching and writing about various aspects of the local history of the Liverpool, Merseyside, S.W.Lancs, Cheshire area for the past 20 years or so. Several works have been published (see links) but there are several papers which remain unseen. Some of this surfaces from time to time as material in local history evening classes which he runs at the University of Liverpool Centre for Continuing Education. However this site makes the material immediately accessible.
