EDGE-HILL, a chapelry, in the district parish of West Derby, parish of Walton-on-the-Hill, union and hundred of West Derby, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 1 mile (S. E.) from Liverpool. The village is pleasantly situated upon rising ground, on the road to Wavertree and Childwall. At a short distance from it, in the vale beneath, is the Liverpool Botanic Garden, comprising eleven acres, laid out with great taste, and having an elegant conservatory in the centre. Here is a station of the Liverpool and Manchester railway, with a depôt and buildings for some of the chief works connected with that undertaking. The station is approached by two inclined carriage-roads, and by three tunnels under different parts of the town, one of which, from Lime-street, is 2000 yards long, another, passing from Wapping, 2216 yards in length, and the third, from Crown-street, 290 yards. It contains two engine-houses (in each of which is a fixed engine for drawing the trains through the tunnels), a carriage-shed 420 feet long and 30 feet wide, some tanks, and other apparatus for facilitating the progress of the work. A fourth tunnel will lead from just above Edge-Hill station to the north end of Liverpool. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of Miss Mason; net income, £170. The chapel, dedicated to St. Mary, was erected a few years since, by the late E. Mason, Esq., and is a commodious structure, with a steeple; the churchyard is surrounded by a row of fine trees. There is a place of worship for Baptists; also a Roman Catholic chapel, and a school in union with the National Society.
