    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?
