Very interesting site here detailing all the stage coaches and ferrys timetables and names. The site also has national stage coach timetables.

"Stage-Coach Timetables in 1830's Cheshire

Here are the timetables for all the stage-coaches, and passenger-boats, running in Cheshire in the spring of 1830. If Ye Worlde Wide Webbe had existed in 1830, this page could have been used to plan real journeys.

The first map shows the routes within Cheshire. Click on a stopping place (black dot) to see a list of coaches stopping there, click on a coach in the list to view its timetable."

That's fascinating! Thanks for posting. What a resource it would be for anyone writing fiction set in those times. Some of the stagecoach names are quite entertaining.

Interesting to note, that despite almost 200 yrs on, the distance with new road systems etc is no different.

Google search Today London to Liverpool 220 miles.

In 1830's : 207, 218, 211 respectively. I wonder how they measured the distance back then ?

The Albion went to Chester and Woodside before Liverpool , so must have crossed on the old ferry boats too.

It started it's journey from here. The Swan and Two Necks.

Nice find Granny.
It's good to see the Express and the Umpire still running in 1836.
In 1830 it doesn't show any stage-coaches to LIverpool via Birkenhead. I wonder, did the ferries take stage-coaches in 1830 because it would have been quicker than going around Warrington?
You are right about the outside seats though, that must have been horrific for 24+ hours, haha!
Another thing, they must have stopped, and swapped the driver and horses at least once on the journey.

With the dawn of the steam engines coming up, I wonder how long these long haul stage-coach journeys lasted for?
