My Sunday Photo!


It was low tide yesterday afternoon on the River Mersey. I always think it looks eerie, it is almost as though we could cross the sand to Liverpool. 6th February 2016 – The River Mersey This was the view out towards the Cheshire Plains. It takes us about a five minute walk through the woods to this point, at the edge of the river. It is a very pretty route that allows us to.. Read More

My Sunday Photo!


30th January 2016 – Eastham Country Park I took this picture yesterday as we walked Jack in the woods behind our house. We managed to catch the best hour of the day, the sky was blue, the sun was bright but it was bitterly cold. When we got home and I looked at the picture properly, I was amazed at how bright the sun had been shining, the weather had turned to sleet.. Read More

Eastham Fights Back!

Good morning!! This is the view from my kitchen window. This  tree is so old that it is the subject of a Tree Preservation Order. Therefore, between that and the Grade II listing on The Chapel, we are hopeful that our view will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future. We are so very lucky! However our neighbours literally around the corner may not be so fortunate. I know some of you have local.. Read More

Ferry Across The Mersey………

He thought it would be a good idea to build a hotel in Eastham to accommodate.. Read More
