Swan Pedaloes but No Taxi on the Canal Today

I have to say a big thank you to Liverpool Biennial and the other agencies involved in this project. If this hadn’t been happening I doubt we would ever have discovered this part of Liverpool. Though I’ve lived here over 50 years, I hardly know North Liverpool at all and the Leeds – Liverpool canal is only something I’ve heard about but not seen.

So its was great to be there just for a short while on this sunny summer’s day even though I was too lazy to actually have a go on the pedalo and unfortunately the Canal Taxi was out of service today. They’ll let us know when its fixed so we hope to go back for a ride. It is made from the body a real black cab taxi which has been turned upside down and made waterproof, its free and stops at various points along the canal.

There were a few families there today having fun, its something I’m sure they’ll remember.

A lovely veg and herb garden has been created there too, lots of butterflies around and the lettuce looks delicious.
Its at the back of St Winnies Primary School on Merton Rd, you can park in the school grounds or its not far from Bootle Stations.
