For those Hoylake Junction readers who are in Hoylake during the working week you’ll have no doubt noticed the regular thud, thud, thudding that has been going on all week.
Construction works have started (photo – right) at the Hoose Court site on Market Street and pile driving has been making itself heard (and felt) for most of the week. It reminded me of the last time Hoylake succumbed to some consistent thudding …when the new lifeboat station was being constructed. Pictured above (main photo taken in September, 2007) are some of the piles that were hammered into the beach. The piles must support the new slipway and I presume the numerical markings indicate metres? I’ve got lots of photos documenting the construction of Hoylake Lifeboat Station …I should really collate them all together.
I can’t quite remember but I suspect that the wind turbine bases out in the Irish Sea are also pile-driven …look forward to that then if and when the wind farm is extended!
By the way, the new construction site hoardings feature some great drawings – I take it that pupils at Holy Trinity School are the talented artists?
