Bidston Windmill sits on Bidston Hill overlooking Birkenhead, Wallasey and Liverpool. It is believed that there has been a windmill situated here since 1596, ieally located to catch the wind. The current version was errected around 1800.
Got to love a bit of history. The windmill is situated in an area of about 100 acres of heathland and woodland and offers a lovely walk and views across to Liverpool. This shot was taken during an Autumn sunrise just as the leaves were turning.
A little bit about the Wirral....
As it’s the place I live I often explore the common and not so common areas looking for inspiration to test my photography skills whilst making the most of the fabulous coastline and never-ending sunsets.
Wirral or The Wirral as named locally is a 15-mile-long peninsula in the Northwest of England. Bordered by the River Mersey, The River Dee, and the Irish Sea it offers plenty of coastline to explore with over 50 miles of beautiful rural walks. If you have never, been I would highly recommend a visit.
Why not take a piece of wall art for your home or office to enjoy the tranquillity that Wirral has to offer.
