Liverpool Ones 55 metre (180 feet tall Wheel construction)
sorry about the quality bad weather day *sighs* nov 04
======================================================
A RIVAL 55m high wheel could be towering above Liverpool One by November.
Second big wheel could come to Liverpool One

The Nottingham-based Mellor Group has applied to raise its own observation wheel in Chavasse Park, which would be taken down at the end of January.

Gerald Andrews, director of finance at ACC Liverpool, said: “The big wheel at Liverpool One would be a fantastic attraction for the city during the festive season and a great precursor to the arrival of our own observation wheel on the waterfront in mid-February
