This one does not show all the route of the Fender but it does show the general relationship with the Birket and other landmarks

I cannot put a date to the map I supplied - quite old I think. No doubt someone else will add comment

Very kind of you, the area I'm interested in is what's reported as the Fender in the Landican area. Suggestions, maps, links anyone?

Interesting. I came across a reference to a Landican Bridge as crossing the Fender, thoughts?

Landican Bridge ? I can only guess at the (pre-motorway) concrete bridge over the Fender. Built in the '30's. Maybe about 100yds west of the railway bridge over Woodchurch Road. All blatted in the '70's when they built the A552/M53 intersection.

My playground when I was nought but a lad ! ha.ha.

Try and get your hands on a copy of the 'Waterside Wirral' book, produced by the Mersey Basin Trust. It's full of maps, photos, and info etc., on Wirral's waterways. Ask at your local library if you can't find one in the shops. Seem to think it use to sell for something like a fiver.

Anyway, failing that, see if the Greg Dawson books say anthing about it. His book on Arrowe might be a good starting point.
