Strange mini UK found in Liverpool
It seems as though there is another UK land mass within the UK
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
That's pretty cool. Thanks!
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!

So I wonder what the date of the Google Earth Image is?
The attached kmz indicates where the Granada TV studios used to be

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