Eric Lynch is a black scouser. He developed this tour to "read" the buildings of Liverpool - the docks where the slave ships sailed from, and the wealth created from the trade, especially the banks. It is surprising to see how honest the banks were about the source of their wealth - with reliefs on the outside and paintings on the inside showing shackles and whips and cotton. Absolutely fascinating and be quick! Eric is getting on and hasn't got the energy he once had, but he still goes those few extra yards to show you the site of his birth and buildings associated with Liverpool's alliance with the southern states in the civil war in North America. His stories are pure gold. Do it while it's available!!
Underneath Edge Hill, a quiet district of Liverpool, lie the Williamson Tunnels. A retired tobacco merchant called Joseph Williamson paid to have them dug in the early 1800s, and nobody knows why. He might have been trying to create honest work for the unemployed, he might have been digging a bunker in which he could sit out Armageddon. Visitors can take a guided tour through a section of the vast complex – more tunnels are still being rediscovered.
A lovely little Mexican restaurant has just opened up at the bottom of my Nan's road. I took my girlfriend there last Friday and we had a great time. The atmosphere was really nice and relaxed and the food was absolutely brilliant, I never knew chilli con carne could be so sexy.
