Walk in the Beatles Footsteps – the Parade Route – This map allows visitors to retrace the parade route of July 6, 1957.  It includes photos from 1957, and shows those buildings as they looked 60 years later!

The maps were created by two students at the University of Chester, Sophie Brooks and Nathan Morris, as part of their coursework for their History degree.  We are extremely grateful to Sophie, Nathan and the University of Chester for their support of St Peter’s Church.
