A week or more ago I took one of my early morning rides out of St Helens and into Steelhead proper (I was looking for a store to rent, but more of that another time) when I happened across some exciting additions to the city. First off I was very excited to see that work has started on the ambitious under sea railway tunnel to link the old 17 to the steamlands.
I don’t know what the captain of the Clockhaven Queen thinks about it, but I can’t imagine he’s pleased… Still, the tunnel is an architectural marvel!
And speaking of architectural marvels I note that work has finished on the new public library.
It’s a grand old affair and real feather in out city’s cap, but I will miss the old library and its gardens…
