"The quaint fishing village called Birkenhead" (PW) AFAIR.. "Paul was born in the quaint little fishing village of Birkenhead and studied mathematics"
Paul O'Grady and Glenda Jackson!!
Can probably see Peel on a good day.
I've never seen Birkenhead described quite that way - I grew up in Meols a few miles from there.
Maybe it was a plug for the hospitality branch. At the time I was thinking of breaking off my holidays in Manx in lieu of a day visit to that exquisite little village.
What about the millions of people who want to see the corner at Winslow, AZ, what?
Or the yanks who want to know where Glocca Morra and Brigadoon are LOL
