You can see for miles up there. On a clear day that's as far as Snowdonia in the West and the Pennines in the East. The greatest sight of all is right in front of you. The whole of Merseyside laid out like a map on the landscape.
The Rivers Mersey and Weaver both follow their courses, emptying out in Liverpool Bay. The Manchester Ship Canal takes a straighter route off into the north. They all glisten in the sunlight. Then, when the sun begins to set, they reflect back the fiery sky.
You can watch the ships coming in, bright in daylight, illuminated at night. The smaller ones mere specks, while detail can easily be discerned on those great liners. Of course some are more famous than others, like the Ferry 'Cross the Mersey with its own song.
