    Mersey now "clean"?

    The salford end has airators , as the locks are used for many sporting events the mersey ferry tour of the canal is good especially for lovers of wild life

    did anyone go to the Ritz to watch Peter Brough and Archie Andrews? did you get a mini mouth organ off Larry Addler? do you remember the late night pop concerts at the Odeon, I think Dave Warwick ran them

    Mersey Ports Master Plan

    I worked on the corner of forrest street for many years and i remember that wheh they opened knutsford road bridge on a sunny day, it expanded and they could not close it. the fire brigade would punp water on it to cool it down.
