In all the lockdown shrinking of our worlds this year I nearly forgot to go and look at what happens to the far end as every autumn begins.
This is the far end of Queen’s Drive, Liverpool’s major ring road. It starts all the way round the city in Bootle and for most of its length is the multiple lanes, carriageways and lights you’d expect of a major road. Until it gets to here, almost in Sefton Park, where Liverpool’s major ring road becomes a celebration of trees. And every autumn, one of the most beautiful places in the whole city.
Yesterday I remembered. And before going to our allotment to do my university work and Zooming for the day, I went for a look.
So if you’re in Liverpool, and you’ve never been to the far end, the next few weeks would be a good to time to come and see it. Every autumn it becomes one of the marvels of our city.
