Seahouses Mersey Class Lifeboat house.

Grace Darling is about 100 feet away in the Lifeboat House.
I stayed in the Viking complex for a week last month
with a view of the statue, the Lifeboat House and the
Farnes.
Beautiful area :-))

Arrow and Bluebird, it is Malmesbury Abbey, the clue was generous, and Wikipedia is very handy O0


My brother-in-law came from Malmesbury, or more correctly, Rodbourne, a couple of miles away, and we have been there on several occasions.

Well, it does show part of the Mersey - but which part, the general area will do; bonus for identifying the two land marks.

You mean the Anglican Cathedral, the other one is the Metropolitan Cathedral (The Mersey Funnel) -  Afraid not, wrong side.

Correct on both, in fact it's the air shaft for the Kingsway Tunnel which is regarded as the "new tunnel" here.
