Excellent photo!!! Greetings from Athens.
yes Zorro every week
hi yes it is sad to see it go, I went there myself in the 60s but I think its positive thing to do to record the present as it soon becomes the past.
I went in there once around 1970 it was looking very shabby at that time.I think it was closed down shortly after that and was knocked down sometime in the 70s.
I used to go to steam fairs at the base when i lived in Earlestown in the 6os.
This picture was taken by a friend.
I believe four people went up in a helicopter, judging by the photo's they took they they started north of warrington went as far as Wigan
I wonder why this is getting more views than the better pics in my album ? LOL
I found this shot which I didn't intend posting as it wasn't upto standard. I've done a lot of processing to bring out as much detail as I could for you.
It's actually looking slightly left of the viaduct but I think it's what you meant.
The slag heap is almost completely gone and is being landscaped now.
Thanks NERDIN and thanks OLDBERMUDIAN for the information.
I did actually go on the ferry with the bike i hired but i could not remember what it looked like
