Liverpool Docks - drone footage taken from above

Postby Mack » Sun Oct 15, 2017 11:09 pm

Used to love going down there for a wander or a bike ride or to just take photos. Anyone know if there is a way in to explore nowadays? I know it's all blocked off but surely there should be some way to look around? ie: jump over a wall or fence or something. :wink:

Thanks for posting Mack, drones are definitely the way forward. Do you remember the one of the Klondike, when it was all closed up?

They have a thing called ISPS which excludes casual visitors now Mack. All ships and ports are off limits.
I’ve wandered around Tilbury , unchallenged not long ago but I wore my old “high viz” with company logo on , some lads even waived on my old site ( I think they waived :lol: ). Ken

Hey Ken, was your spelling of wave a Freudian slip? Definitely in an argumentative mood this morning. :D :D

Not meant to be judgmental, Ken. I found it funny as you thought your ex colleagues were possibly dismissing you. :)

Correct me on spelling anytime Phil.
Strange, had I written that with a pen I would have noticed immediately but these devices allow us to get away with it. :D K

You want to try writing on a smartphone ken. You've probably noticed on some of my posts that A is S because of my stubby fingers :D

hi mac. I found that video absolutely fantastic, I worked along the dock for years back in the 60s and did not realise how much unused land there is now, also I think a better use could be made of it than a new ground for the blue half of Merseyside, regards billy. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

To think that would have been full of ships in the day, albeit, small ships in those docks. Would love to see similar of the bigger docks on the North End. :D K
