To Round Off My Day On The Wirral, A Short Sea Fishing Session In The Mersey Estuary

I had a very enjoyable day on the Wirral peninsula and I ended my time there fishing the River Mersey at New Brighton.

I was last there in the mid-nineties, so it was nice to return. The video below covers the session.


  1. A few years since I was last in New Brighton Stewart I remember a walk down the Mersey Estuary all the way to Birkenhead. good to see money spent on regeneration projects in the town. In the 1970s the resort was on its knees as vividly illustrated by a famous photographic exhibition called `The Last Resort` (the pics are all available via a Google search) A very food bookshop opposite New Brighton train station.

    1. Twenty-plus years for me as well. It’s looking good. I didn’t have time but there’s an excellent looking retail development by the marine lake. I certainly enjoyed my time there. Lovely spot if you’re local.
