runner in world during its Industrial and Post Industrial eras The area has been blessed with vast amounts of History and for a small area it excels than most Forget Westminster, the first parliament in the UK was actually on the Wirral, a little area of Merseyside across the River from Liverpool It is the nation s capital of Viking history Inside this book you will find information of the Viking Ship found in an area called Meols where Vikings first came ashore onto the Wirral The name Wirral is derived from the Gaelic meaning Wyre Heal or Myrtle Corner This is because of the peninsula being heavily forested in the past The area was populated by large amounts of deer and other game, so much so that in Medieval times kings and noblemen used the area for hunting The emblem of Wirral is the Wirral Horn The Horn is a brass tipped hunting horn used by the foresters of Wirral and is portrayed in many of the Coats of Arms associated with the peninsula The horn was given to Alan Sylvester the first Forrester of Wirral and has passed through thirty generations to the present owner the Honourable Vivian Baring who has leant it to Wirral Museums where it has been on display There has been a settlement at what is today known as Wallasey for many thousands of years Archaeological investigations at the highest point of Wallasey St Hilary s Brow unearthed artefacts dating back to the Stone Age The name Wallasey is derived from the Gaelic Wealas Eye which roughly translated means Welshmen s or Strangers Island This was due to the fact that Wallasey could only be reached by crossing water whether it be the River Birkett, Wallasey Pool, the River Mersey or Liverpool Bay Birkenhead has often been overshadowed by its neighbour, Liverpool, but it has its own unique and interesting history It was at the forerunner of the Parks Movement which the New York Central Park is designed on that of Birkenhead Park Birkenhead was also first place in Europe with a street tramway To the north of Birkenhead lies a ridge known as Bidston Hill The hill lies between Wallasey Pool and the marshlands that extended from Moreton right the way up to Prenton prior to the Leasowe Embankment being constructed and Moreton Marshes being drained The hill is an extension of the Storeton Ridge that runs down the Wirral as far as Storeton Quarry, where the Storeton Tramway an early railway conveyed the rock quarried at Storeton to docks at Bromborough Pool Port Sunlight on the banks of the River Mersey At the north western corner of the Wirral Peninsula, approximately one and a half kilometres off the coast, adjacent to West Kirby, there lies an exposed reef of sandstone At high water, most of the reef is submerged The three parts of the reef that are exposed form the Hilbre group of islands Geological evidence suggests that originally, there was one large island But, over the years, tide and weather erosion have worn away at the soft red sandstone to create three islands The three islands that form the Hilbre chain of islands are known individually as Little Eye, Middle Hilbre and the main island of Hilbre itself West Kirby is a town on the north west corner of the coast of the Wirral Peninsula, in the county of Merseyside, England, at the mouth of the River Dee across from the Point of Ayr in North Wales To the north east of the town lies Hoylake, with the village of Caldy to the south east The HitchHikers Guide to the History of the Wirral Coastline Kindle Edition This is a massive undertaking that unfortunately swamps the author in the attempt While he does a heroic job in the main part, this is in need of a serious revision by a competent editor, that can help him correct some errors that hurt his body of work In reviewing this wonderfully enlightening work, one constantly was correcting spelling, printing gaff s, typo s, missing pictures to correlate with the text Another The HitchHikers Guide to the History of the Wirral Coastline Kindle Edition This is a massive undertaking that unfortunately swamps the author in the attempt While he does a heroic job in the main part, this is in need of a serious revision by a competent editor, that can help him correct some errors that hurt his body of work In reviewing this wonderfully enlightening work, one constantly was correcting spelling, printing gaff s, typo s, missing pictures to correlate with the text Another part was annotation of items and bibliography that should really have been in the back of the book instead of taking up valuable space in the main work If this is going to be used as a guide and a resource for the general public as well as a reference source for scholars or the author might wish to have it considered in that realm , it might be wise to not take an aggressive, belligerent, or mocking joking tone about the local councils or powers that be, if you are looking for, or expecting them to, have, or give, a favorable recommendation on your work This certainly gives one an illuminating look into how this part of England has changed so very much and yet still retains a lot of its famous historic past if you know where to look A round of applause for the good effort here but please put it immediately into a rewrite, to tidy up these areas, to turn it into a first class piece of work, that scholars and the general pubic, will enjoy for years to come 4 Stars now but it could be a 5, if cleaned up
