The River Mersey between the Bear Pit and the Bus Station

The river Mersey spends the first mile of its life culverted under the Merseyway Shopping Centre. It emerges here at the Bear Pit. The shadow of Wellington Road Viaduct falls upon the reflections of trees. Behind the fence (top right) is Stockport bus station. Between the fence and the bridge are steps leading up to Wellington Road South.

To take this second photo I had to poke my camera over that fence and shoot blindy back towards where I took the first photograph. Here we see the river emerging from its murky culvert with the balustrade at the Bear Pit above it. Over it all is an arch of the viaduct that carries Wellington Road over the valley. The viewpoint can be seen on the left hand side of the photograph From Viaduct to Viaduct which I posted last week.

Both photographs were taken Saturday 25th May 2013.
