Sunday Snap – Across the Mersey

Our trip in last week's Sunday Snap was to the Derbyshire house built by Elizabeth Shrewsbury better know as Bess. I asked what the house was called and the answer is

Hardwick Hall

Our architectural historians getting it right last week were Stephanie, Cass, Jen and Kizzy.

For this week we're going across to Liverpool and a view across the River Mersey. From Albert Dock you get a great panorama of the Wirral town the other side of the river. Apart from Trafalgar Square this town has the most Grade I listed buildings in one place. You can see why it caught my eye! In the centre of the photograph is the spire of St. Mary's Tower in the grounds of the Priory. The tall building is one of the six ventilation stations for the Queensway Mersey Tunnel. The final structure on the left viable in the skyline is the former town hall now used as the local registry office. Out of sight to the south is the model village of Port Sunlight.

Which Wirral town is this the view of?

We were joined last week by Sophie who was getting snappy in the playground. Kara caught someone hiding behind the curtains. Over in New Zealand Betty took as on a tour of the beautiful flowers at Tupare Gardens. Making the most of the snow was Susan's duo. Out exploring the Dorset beaches again was Sarah. Our Vegan Taff Kelly has been capturing the most Welsh flower of all the daffodil. Kara was watching the birds by the water. Finally, Snoskred took us for a walk along the coast.
