This is a magnificent photo Rev, it's just like someone unrolled the carpet.

On a clear day from Rivington Pike, see the Irish Sea.
Since my last view, lots of new things David but still instantly recognisable.
Good photo - thank you.

Burbo Bank offshore wind farm off the Wirral coastline starts across from New Brighton and links into other wind farms all the way down the welsh coast to Menai Straits. That is a crackin' photo David -just shows what can be seen on a clear day from Rivington Pike. If had you swung round to the left slightly, the Liverpool L2 Dock cranes would have been in the shot. (92 metres tall they are)

I'm looking forward to the day I go up on Rivington and can see five of the seven Kingdoms visible from Snae Fell.
Mick - put your flag up, and I'll see if I can get your house centre-picture next time....
