    It is a fantastic photograph, although I think corky100 means Birkenhead Priory.

    corky, am I right??? That is the type of thing I would do: think of one thing and write something else. . . .

    Danger!!! River Mersey ferry on the loose!!!!

    Phredd, what's the story behind this photograph? Was it a special day excursion up the Manchester Ship Canal? Also when did the voyage take place?

    Chris it is a usual thing now for excursion from Liverpool to Salford and then a bus back to liverpool.
    They do a return trip with those from Manchester to Liverpool and then bus back to Salford.

    Last time a checked the site I think it cost about ?32 for the trip.

    The picture was taken last year from Wigg Island Community Park>; (the old ICI testing ground for Mustard Gas and other evil doings during and shortly after WW2).

    Wow. Surely you need a license to pack a lens like that. Or a forklift.

    Why can't they get the ferry back? It has to get back to Merseyside anyway.

    people who go up on the buses return on the ferry and the ones that went up on ferry come back on the buses. thats why they cant come back on the ferry

    Wife and I spent a few hours down on the Prom at New Brighton.
    Nice sunny & pleasant day.
    River seemed rather busy with ships.

    As a kid I was always amazed by the deck hands jumping on the gangway to help it come down onto the deck.
