1825 LIVERPOOL Streets ~ No.16


After the cold and wet journey to and from Moffat in Scotland, I was glad to get back to Liverpool. The coach journey was awful, flooded roads, rivers of mud and ruts so deep that in places the underside of the coach was catching on the bank of earth forming down the middle of the road. The poor horses were straining to get us through and I'm sure were relieved when a new team was hitched up at Lancaster after the haul over Shap ~ in the fog. My fellow passengers were a miserable lot and I was glad to see the lights of Liverpool and the Mersey. Of course you will remember that once back in the town the fog was as bad as ever and and stayed until after my visit to the Custom House, but since then the air has cleared, and now this evening I have decided to continue my rambles round the streets. The lamp lighters have done their rounds, and the sky has become a dark purple now encrusted with thousands of stars and there is a full moon. All this lends itself to a brisk walk, so here we go:

It is now nearly 10 o/clock at night, and the earlier damp cobbles are now coated with a thin layer of ice, which makes them look like a multitude of diamonds picking up light from the moon, stars and street lamps. It is however becoming difficult to walk in clogs on this icecovered surface, so I am again going to call into the Ale House I found on my last travels. I will however restrict my intake this time, as the reception I received on returning home last time was to say the least, extremely frosty!!! Depending on the weather in the morning I will probably go down to the waterfront to continue finding out the destinations of the Coastal Sailing vessels. When I come back to the roads and streets, I will be starting with CHESTERFIELD STREET.
