The end of it all

This photo shows the end of it all... that is, the end of what I think of as 'my' canal, the Leeds-Liverpool, which runs from Leeds through Saltaire's World Heritage Site and then across the Pennines to Liverpool. Until recently, the navigable canal ended at Stanley Dock in Liverpool. It has recently been extended by 1.4 miles so that boats can go right into the heart of the old docks, now a thriving tourist area that is part of the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City, another UNESCO World Heritage Site. The canal terminates in front of the buildings known as The Three Graces - that is, the Royal Liver Building (Liver birds atop its domes), the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building (not shown in my photo) and passes the Mersey Ferry terminal (the modern building to the left) and the new Museum of Liverpool.

It was nice to say hello to 'my canal' at the other end of its journey.

For the next few days, I'm posting some photos I took in Liverpool earlier in the year. I've hit one of those patches where I've run out of interesting current photos so I'm going to have to trawl the archives...


  1. Hi Jenny - one day ... I'd love to visit the whole area properly - enjoy your time trawling old memories ... I'll be gone a while now - see you shortly in another place - cheers Hilary

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing some Liverpool pics!

  3. Quite distinctive in black and white!

  4. Well done, jennyfreckles. I like the composition and the black and white, even though I far more often prefer color.
