    Is it a man-made island or something. I tried looking online for information, but I couldn't find anything.

    Actually it used to be a whether map that a person would stand on

    Seriously it was a whether map in the Late 1980's.

    Yeah, it must be that island that the bloke from 'This Morning' would stand on when showing the weather in a 'fun and unorthodox' way!

    Good find though

    Yeah.. thats freds weather map!

    He used to run around it doing the weather, and jump across to ireland! and yes, he fell in once too..!

    Used on 'This Morning' before the program moved to london... the map has gone from the dock now.

    What's interesting is that it wasn't there last September, nor this jetty near it!

    We were there to see my daughter-in-law off crewing on the Clipper Ship Liverpool08 on the Round the World Clipper Yacht race -- see this link (click on Gallery if you want to see what it looke like just before the start) and the basin -- Albert Dock -- was empty except for the 10 Clippers moored along where you can see a sailing boat and the map etc

    So I wonder what the date of the Google Earth Image is?

    The attached kmz indicates where the Granada TV studios used to be

    Yup, I though that as soon as I seen it, I remember when it was on TV, some woman would do the weather forecast standing on it.

    As for the late 80's, i seen it being used durning the late 90's.
