mersey moonlight and shine
across the hills
to river dee,
in the trees and grass,
and shipyard sinew,
bricks of sweat and toil,
where smugglers coins
fell to sand,
seen by little eye,
and gentle veil of mist,
i feel home
cradled by the lake
and shivering masts
of a yachting few

my mersey spine
back and tail
to my wirral home,
breathing over welsh hills
with ebb n flow of dee,
liver city waterfront,
this place so green and urban
has a pull
to those toiling at sea
or travelling afar,
landscape pulls you back,
lighthouses on the shore,
of ancient times,
from road or motorway
distinctive in it’s way
born from the hundred,
Still busy filming around Liverpool and The Wirral , a place soon to be bustling for the Golf Open at Hoylake, the first image is at St Georges Hall in Liverpool a beautiful building showing how versatile the city is for filming and such great architecture
Also heard that Hadlow Road was used this is a restored railway station part of the old track forms a great walk called the Wirral Way
More and more production companies are heading here and if i can get any more information will let you know.

After Morse we got Foyle’s War now filming it’s 9th Season in Liverpool which stands in for London and on the Wirral where my wife and i caught with them in West Kirby our hometown, setting up camp in the car park near to Morrisons Car Park, caterers and props offloaded, we have a diverse location here Paul Bettany’s Blood was filmed here and on the Wirral some parts of Fast and The Furious 6 although i have to say a Morris 8 would not out run a Dodge Challenger but it has as much style.
Set in the turbulent era of the Cold War following on from the war it will be interesting to see the locations and how they are utilised , Hilbre Island is a big attraction so it is possible they would use this before the fracking starts.
Below are the first images i have captured and hopefully i might get some more as Acorn Productions progress with filming.
Austin Seven and Morris 8 no sign of Rileys or Bentleys did see what looked like Daniel Weyman in costume in a Chrysler Voyager

Having been really busy all week Chris and I escaped the family and wandered down to a local park in West Kirby, Ashton Park, http://www.ashtonpark.btck.co.uk/History/AfullerHistoryofAshtonPark as i wanted to try out my new camera.
I have exchanged my Nikon D3100 for a Nikon D7000 and i am really excited about using it, there are lots of new buttons to learn 🙂 and remember. This camera does trip me up though as i keep forgeting to put back the memory card as it doesnt tell you that there is no card in the slot 😦 and i took some lovely photos the other night of the sunset without a memory card, luckily the following evening was a similar sunset, this time with a memory card!
Anyway getting back to our wanderings, we wandered down to the park on a lovely sunny day. I took some photos of…
