Geography: Hunt's Cross

Key points of interest in Hunt's Cross, Liverpool, England. The ancient cross-roads in what was to become Merseyside, south of Liverpool, were given the name Hunt's Cross due to the fox hunts that met there preparatory to setting off. Till this day, the surrounding countryside and farmland remains the home of a number of foxes that are sometimes glimpsed there (“Hunt’s Cross”, [s.d.]). The words “pedestal of stone cross” appear on the 1848 ordnance map at the site of Hunt’s Cross, close to the local railway station, at the intersection of Hunt’s Cross Lane and Sandy Lane (Lancashire and Cheshire Antiquarian Society, 1902). Famed lead guitarist and co-founder of the most famous British pop group of all time, The Beatles, George Harrison, MBE (25 February 1943 – 29 November 2001), lived in Hunt’s Cross from 1962 to 1965. One of the stanzas to his song “Sunshine Life For Me” goes: “Now most folks just bore me / Always imposing, and I'd rather meet a tree / Somewhere out in the cornfield (Lyrics Freak, [s.d.]).
