    Excellent pics Judging by the weather it's a good job it's all enclosed. Do they shake in the wind ?

    I only went on it yesterday because I'd promised to take my daughter on & she wasn't taking no for an answer.....I had half expected for the wind to blow us off & into the Mersey
    but yesterday the weather was lovely & I hardly felt it rock even though I was going from side to side trying to get a decent photo

    Hi Mandy,
    Pic' no'6,with St. Georges church,gives some impression of how the area must have looked,before any housing was built! Then, the shipping owners could see their boats coming up the Mersey!

    Judging by the cracked sections on the side, those mirror sections are not going to last very long, unless the cranes have been hitting them

    Good pics Robbo. I know how hard it is to get a decent pic from up there. I was dissappointed with it to be honest. It just didn't seem high enough.
    Anyway glad you got some decent pics this time.

    Good photos! Robbo. I agree with Wsteve, St georges and the surrounding area must have looked good before the housing.
