    Default 'Air raid' siren in South Liverpool?

    There's a siren that sounds at 8.45am (every day - Sunday, bank holidays, Christms day.. the lot) in south Liverpool and it's driving me nuts trying to find out where it comes form. I've been told it could be Garston Tannery but that could be too far away but not impossilel with the wind in the right direction etc.

    PLEASE does anybody know where it come from!

    Embrace the air-raid siren, i've lived with it all my life and its never punctual, sometimes 9am, sometimes 9.05am...

    A warm welcome

    Thanks for the reply. I've looked in books, serched the net and asked all the more 'senior' people I know and all have drawn a blank.

    It's comforting to hear every morning but as I said it's driving me nuts trying to find out whatthe hell it is.

    Ta again

    I was out at Otterspool a while ago and it sounded like it came from over the water somewhere, but that could have just been the sound carrying around on the wind or something. I've always wanted to find out its origin too
