Barges are cargo carrying boats of greater width, typically 14 ft, which restricts them to sections of the canal system having double width locks and tunnels.

    Great shot of Fort Perch Rock, Joe. Wonderful to see the return of yellow sand to this area! Just a pity you could no longer get there directly by ferry.........

    Well if its ward council got their heads together and devised a plan to build a new pier on the sea front it would start thriving again.

    No one wan'ts to sit on a double decker on hot day on the way to New Brighton and back...the ferry was pleasurable ride to and from its destination with onlyt a short walk to public services home.

    Looks good, probably sounds better, a good way of building good relationships between different cultures.
    I spoke to a guy this morning who had travelled from Walsall in the West Midlands to see it.
    Can only do good things to raise the profile of Liverpool and Merseyside.

    Any more pics please.

    Stone Street, Prescot near Liverpool. Reputedly the narrowest street in England. Incidentally Liverpool's address was once, Liverpool, near Prescot. How times have changed.

    Hmmm! it just might be but....

    In my eyes I would class this as a walkway or allyway if ya like.
    My idea of a street is where coaches,cars and entrances to houses reside.
