Wirral has more horses per head of population than anywhere else in the UK.
Wow that's a quality stat.
It's also incredibly diverse with have some Wards that are in the top 10% most affluent in the UK and some that are in the poorest 10%. Just think about the differance between Laird
St and Lower Heswall.
Other facts that I know about the Wirral:
- The M53 J1 flyover has the deepest piles in the country
- For a while the Merseyrail tunnel under the Mersey had the steepest, unassisted climb of any railway in the world (don't know if that's still the case)
- Hamilton square has the largest concentration of listed buildings in one place in the UK apart from Trafalger square
