The correct location is the Gillbrooke Basin, or now the bottom thereof, West Float, Birkenhead.

Looks like a view of the river Wensum with Norwich Cathedral in the distance.

sorry, but don't think that is Norwich Cathedral.

the cathedral has a number of round openings above 3 rectangular lights at the top most of the tower,on each face but this "church" doesn't.and from looking at it, there are only two rectangular lights.

Correct - the original picture posted was taken from Jones Boatyard @ St.Ives where I moor my humble gin palace!

Indeed - a wild and lumpy day on the river last week, a couple of 'phones and pads' got wiped out as she dropped into a trough and it came back over the bow; silly people.
