    There are very few traces of 'cobbled' streets around, but there are several with old 'setts'.
    There's an old cobbled track in Otterspool, on the right as you head for the Cafe building. There was a previous thread which mentioned a few others.

    Hygeia st looks like it had a cheap layer of tar and it wore off - and the old sets are still there and will be for around 100 years. Made of granite.

    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
