It might only be early April but construction work on the viewing galleries at Royal Liverpool in advance of The Open is well underway. I took this photo this morning and as you can see, the grandstand at the 18th (I presume) is certainly taking shape. There’ll be lots of activity between now and July so if you fancy a nose take a walk down Stanley Road or along the board walk from Red Rocks to West Kirby. Or you could even follow the blue line.
Apologies for the poor quality of this week’s photo – even by my standards! I hadn’t intended to walk past the golf course this morning and only had a camera phone with me. I dropped this old Nokia through the gap at the top of our stairs and it fell onto the parquet hall floor in bits. And then for good measure, I did the exact same thing again about a week later. It’s still working but now gives the occasional error message …but make do and mend and all that. Anyway, don’t leave your phone in your jeans pocket and then hang said jeans over the bannister!
I know The Open at Hoylake isn’t universally welcomed with open arms …are you passionately for or against it? Have your say in the comments below.
