WIRRAL is a remarkable and fascinating place surrounded by water on three sides. This book puts the spotlight - with a panoramic display of photographs - on the peninsula’s meandering waterfronts: sweeping along the coastline from Parkgate to New Brighton and Ellesmere Port. Flanked by the monochrome reaches of the wide estuary of the river Dee that springs from the wild, rocky mountains of north Wales, it is then washed by the turbulent expanse of the Irish Sea, where Hilbre island and other nuggets of scattered outcrops of land have such ecological importance; and then it juts almost impertinently into the fast, flowing estuary of the river Mersey. Lord Hunt of Wirral and Ben Chapman, the Member of Parliament for Wirral South have contributed special forewords to this fascinating tribute to the area’s attractions.
