A small town in Liverpool, about 5 miles from the city centre.

The name comes from it's Viking history, 'Huy' meaning 'high' and 'ton' meaning 'town'. It's been around so long it appeared in the Domesday Book of 1066.

Famous people from Huyton include the Liverpool F.C. footballer Steve Gerrard, and was represented by Harold Wilson, who was the M.P. for the area before he became Prime Minister of Great Britain.

The locals speak in a Scouse dialect, distinct to the Liverpool area. A local term for Huyton is 'Two Dogs'. This comes from an old rhyme 'Huyton, Huyton, two dogs fightin'.
