    My afternoon was spent up the Church tower at Childwall giving everything the once over.

    Just been out and about to test the new camera, takes some amazing zoom shots!

    Went up to the loop line just past the Childwall Valley Road railway bridge:

    1 - The Bridge over Childwall Valley Road.

    2 - 13x zoom to Childwall Church, made up with this one.

    3 - Peeping over the bridge at Childwall Valley Road

    4 - Under the same bridge - the white stuff is actually seeping through the walls!

    Cheers chaps!

    Aye Gnomie, do you ever remember the guards hut just by the bridge when the trains pass? Mum remembers this well but there is no trace of it now!

    I'll be in town next weekend zooming in on everything

    (edit - buildings only you understand )

    The difference in a camera - this was taken at full zoom, picture two is the actual distance from the loop line to the church taken with my old camera

    One of the large bombs that was dug up from someone's front garden. Over the road where I live there's a massive field and these were used for the large guns and searchlights to try and take anything down before it reached the docs. Lots of bombs dropped but only one took out a complete house on the corner of Bowland and Bentham Drive. Fantastic picture!

    My favourite part of Childwall.

    I wish more of Liverpool was Village looking like.

    It's partly why I love Woolton and Hale so much.
