    Time to bring this thread back up there; I had trouble finding it again!


    Seacombe Promenade, Wallasey These houses sit on a elevated position overlooking the Mersey and the Docks/ They are also likely to have some great views over the city and the Lancashire Plains to Winter Hill above Bolton too!


    Seacombe Promenade, Wallasey A slightly grainy view (apologies) showing the developing skyline from the Seacombe Prom near to Wallasey Town Hall


    Seacombe Promenade, Wallasey The streetsign proclaiming where we are.


    Seacombe Promenade, Wallasey Wallasey Town Hall taken from the prom. That bloke kept running up and down those steps; must have been trying to loose those turkey pounds still. I wouldn't like to do it!


    Guinea Gap, Wallasey A final look over to Liverpool from the Town Hall more or less, this is possibly one of the finer views across to the city you will find as you can see the massive developments like the Beetham West Tower in more detail than you would if you went down to Woodside.

    The Wallasey shots are a bit sad. The area around the Town Hall is very run down and depressing. You'd think that with such great views of the city across the water this area should be on the up.

    Great photographs, Wallasey! Wonderful to see.

    I trust it is meant to be "Guinea Gap, Wallasey" as in the name of the old baths (are they still there?) not "Guinia Gap, Wallasey" as you spelled it -- I changed to how I thought it should be but will revert it back if I was wrong.

    Thanks for that; what a dumb moment was that! I actually tried guessing the name as I didn't have Livelocal handy (it's what I use when getting the road names back up).

    The baths are still there yes; Never been but they are there. As is the Primary school opposite.

    This part of Wallasey is a little run down but to be honest, it is a little cut off from the rest of the town. Seacombe Ferry isn't the centre of the transport network anymore; that was all moved to Liscard. infact only 4 buses serve Secombe ferry now and 2 of them come up Brighton Street.

    Sorry that posting was little short, will get some more made up for you! I am currently writing an update for Flickr (Tuebrook will soon get 45 more images!)

    A little run down? Brighton Street is one of the least attractive streets on either side of the river!

    Looking forward to seeing those pics of Tuebrook though.

    New Brighton can still be full(ish) of life in the summer or on a hot weekend any other time of the year in the age of global warming. Most of the activity occurs along Marine Promenade. Even the beach sees a bit of action when the weather's good. I'm hoping New Brighton's resting and not terminally ill, or worse still, dead. It looks great from Crosby Beach. Someone ought to launch a small ferry service between Waterloo/Crosby and New Brighton.

    I can second the fact that New Brighton can get pretty busy during the summer or infact on any sunny day!

    The thing is, apart from the "Bright Spot" and the Bowling Alley (now rebuilt with a laser-quest), there really isn't anything much to do. Even the pubs are starting to close!

    New Brighton is only in the state that it is now due to the council and local's protesting over any new plans that would surely be good for what is now a glorified suburb of Wallasey.

    Birkenhead. Can't remember which dock, but it's close to the submarine.

    Nah, HDR's ****...

    Good stuff Dave. I think that's the East Float dock. I was there a year ago and I gave the camera to my girlfriend for a minute while I looked at something, and she took an amazing picture of that boat. Similar angle to yours in fact. I was bit miffed, as it was better than any photo I'd taken that day!!

    We used to play around down there if out on a bike ride, and we were convinced the steel cables would suddenly snap and lash back. But so far they're still holding. An interesting sight for sure...

    Dave: Great image; the dock is the East Float was you were to the East of Duke Street! Btw, as you were on the north side you were in Wallasey which is good.

    Nice image, love the sky looking over to Birkenhead.

    I unintentionally found myself down by where you were last night! I was walking from Conway Street to Seacombe Ferry via 12 Quays! (more to follow)


    Mona Street, Claughton A bit of old Claughton Village which has engulfed by the mass development of Birkenhead during the 1800's. Laird changed the town forever as it was only small fishing village on the banks of Birkenhead Pool (now filled in) close to Woodside. Claughton Village was an agricultural settlement before becomming a part of Birkenhead. I bet the people living in these houses got a shock when everywhere around them suddenly built up in a short space of time.


    Price Street, Birkenhead Looking upto Duke Street and North End.


    Corporation Road/Freeman Street, Bhd Never noticed this before but it is a great relic reminding us of times past and when the Wirral Docks where more active than they currently are.


    Egerton Bridge, 12 Quays This was renovated a few years ago and now provides an pleasant entrance to the 12 Quays Commercial Park.


    East Float, Bhd/Wsey Bound The extensive East and West Floats partially divide Birkenhead from Wallasey. However, it is rather common to see the "Dock Road" which is on the Wallasey side referred to as being in Birkenhead for some reason.


    Four Bridges, Wallasey/Bhd Bound At the East Float here, there used to be four bridges linking Birkenhead with Wallasey. Now there are two.


    New Street, Seacombe I love this contrast in views with the terraces and the Beetham West Tower.


    New Street, Seacombe Shame about United Utilities blocking the view over to the Pier Head; never mind ay!

    Thanks guys, One place on Wirral where I really must get to is Rock Park in Rock Ferry. It's sort of Birkenhead's answer to Cressington but on a much smaller scale. I don't know when I will get round to there, possibly Friday.

    I think that is a great photo, it's forced me to get a new password (lost my old one long ago) to log on just to say so. That is the best New Brighton shot I have seen for a long time.
