|Route outline (key)|
The A563 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Liverpool - Manchester (Proposed new road). Finding the exact route for the road is difficult as the A563 never appeared on any maps, although it is certain that the route would be straighter and less urban than the A57 which connects the two cities.
The 1932 Ten-Mile Road Map of Great Britain, right, shows a proposed A-road between the Walton area of Liverpool and the Pendlebury area of Salford. This road opened in 1934 with the A580 number although it is likely that this took over at least some of the concept of the A563. As such the A563 number never appeared on the ground in this incarnation.
