Stadium Tour - Liverpool to Rochdale



I went to Liverpool on the same day that I visited Oldham and Manchester.  We went to Tranmere first as it was the furthest away.  Driving through the Mersey Tunnel is terrifying, and I had to do it twice to get Prenton Park and back. We were going to avoid it on the way back, but the detour would have added on an hour and a half to the journey.  After I'd taken photos here we drove back through the tunnel and to Anfield.  They were getting a new stand built, I think, so it was quite busy.  


Next, we went to Goodison Park; I was surprised at how close the two stadiums actually are to each other!  The man in the carpark told us where we could park and an Everton bus waved at us while were taking photos in front of the Goodison Road sign. After leaving Everton we drove into Liverpool city centre to see the Liver bird building and headed to Albert Dock for a bite to eat.


The final stops on our long day of touring were Wigan, Bolton, Bury and Rochdale.  We went to Wigan first after dinner - they actually have a brick in the front of the stadium commemorating when they beat us (City) in the cup final.


Bolton were shutting their gates by the time we got there so we quickly snapped a photo and drove to Bury, who actually had shut their gates!  (I had to get a photo through the bars.) Luckily, the last ground on our tour, Rochdale, was easy to get to and I was able to get a picture without any trouble.  Eighteen down, 74 to go…
