Ferry Cross The Mersey
Sea City - Liverpool
Liverpool’s iconic waterfront is the backdrop to a resurgent cruise industry and home turf for Angie Redhead, the city’s Cruise Terminal Manager. A true ambassador for Liverpool, she offers a friendly welcome to tourists and ships’ crews alike.
But she has a big day ahead of her. After four years of planning, Cunard Line’s Three Queens cruise ships are rendezvousing in the Mersey for the company’s 175th anniversary.
Thousands of people turn out to watch a choreographed River Dance by the ships in a memorable display that rekindles Liverpool’s pride in its shipping heritage.
The Mersey is also the backdrop for an annual charity swim, but the rainy weather, tides, cold water and even jellyfish conspire against the brave souls raising cash for their favourite causes.
Two people head for hospital afterwards - but all recover.
And the marine industry is a family affair for Carmet Tug Company. Three generations of Metcalfs run the Merseyside firm that operates up and down the Manchester Ship Canal as well as further afield.
Grandad Ian founded the company – but now his son and grandson shoulder most of the responsibilities while he claims to do the crossword in the office!
