A SPECIAL trail has been created to highlight Liverpool’s links with World War One

To complement the arrival of the iconic Poppies: Weeping Window which will be going on display on part of the façade of St George’s Hall from Saturday 7 November, a trail called Liverpool Remembers has been produced which gives a suggested route around the city centre encouraging residents and visitors to learn more about the trials and tribulations of those whose lives were changed forever by the war.

The trail, which been created by Liverpool City Council in conjunction with National Museums Liverpool, comprises more than 20 locations throughout the city signposting people to memorials ranging from the Liverpool Pals Memorial at Lime Street Station, the Unknown Soldier in Exchange Flags and the Maritime Memorials at the Pier Head right through to buildings of historic interest such as Martins Bank on Water Street, Liverpool Town Hall and several of the city’s museums.

A map detailing all the points of reference is available to download from www.cultureliverpool.co.uk/poppies. It also recommends a route to take in some of the sites which starts at St George’s Hall, works its way through the city centre and ends at the Mersey Ferry Terminal with the dazzle ferry, a First World War centenary art commission by Sir Peter Blake called Everybody Razzle Dazzle.
