    Default Heswall

    We have a few threads here about Wirral, so I thought I'd add this -

    I mentioned on the TV thread about 'Wirral born newsreader' Fiona Bruce.
    She's mentioned at the bottom of the page in the web-site.

    I love Heswall, It's got it all. I take my Caravan there a lot and I'm sure the place has a micro climate as the weather always seems to be nice for us. There is a great static site there too and ive always wanted one but................l

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Loving the Wirral at the moment, especially the coastline. Moreton, Hoylake, West Kirby right down past Thurstaston to Parkgate and Neston.

    Havn't been for a look around for ages. Must go again soon. We used to go for walks around the Wirral way - it's particularly nice on sunny autumn days.

    I did the Wallasey, Egremont, Liscard, New Brighton bit sat and sun. We always used to go the Ring O'Bells pub in West Kirby when the kids were younger as they have a great outdoor bit there.
