Over and Under the Mersey

Last Sunday saw 3/4 of the Pie Tribe head to Liverpool for the Under And Over The Mersey walk. This relatively rare occurence gives people the opportunity to walk under the Mersy via the Queensway tunnel which this year celebrates it's 75th anniversary.

Starting close to St Georges Hall the start was staggered with Bands, singers and Cheggars (Who Said the girls!) seeing us off. The Echo claimed around 15,000 people took part although it seemed a bit more than that.

After completing the walk there were various activities at the Birkenhead end to do once finished. Buses were laid on to take us to the Royal Iris ferry at Woodside and back to Liverpool via Pier Head.
