Here are 3 photos; do you have any idea where they were taken?

The first two are of the same place, just differing angles – It’s The Dell in Maghull at the busy junction of Liverpool Road North and Westway across the road from the Hare and Hounds Pub. If you were there at this time of year, when the trees are in full leaf, it would only be the drone of the traffic that would give away the fact that this is not in the middle of the countryside.

Maghull in Bloom volunteers working with offenders from Melling’s Kennet Prison are presently undertaking long-term ecological work at The Dell.

The 3rd photo is off a section of the Leeds Liverpool Canal right in the heart of Bootle Village and next to the Strand Shopping Centre. The shot was taken from the bridge that takes Stanley Road over the canal where taxi’s and buses predominate.

It just goes to show that in urban town centres a little oasis of green can make all the difference.
