    Hi all

    Does anyone remember -- or does it still occur -- the one o'clock gun?

    Thanks, Lindy. I think the one-o'clock gun came from New Brighton as I recall. Or am I dreaming????

    Hi all

    Actually I have researched and there is quite a lot on the one o'clock gun on the net. It appears the actual gun was located in Birkenhead but the timing was controlled by the observatory in Bidston. See the following for various references:

    The gun's still there. It's in between the Seacombe Mersey and Irish Ferry terminals.

    Thank you, Dave, for that information. Could you or someone get a pic? Does it still fire at one o'clock? I presume not based on what Lindy said but you may know better.
