Crosby Channel Starboard Marker/Light Float C3
Crosby Channel Starboard Marker/Light Float C3
The shipping route approaching Liverpool follows the Queen's Channel, the Crosby Channel, and the River Mersey. The channels, which are well marked by numbered and lit buoyage, run between tall training banks that channel the scouring effects of the tide to keep the deep water approaches to Liverpool open. There are sandbanks and relatively shallow waters side either of the channel.

This is one of the green (starboard) markers. Its number is not visible from this angle, but navigation charts show that there is a green buoy (C3) at this position (approx. 5331.65N, 310.1W +/- 50m). The coastline at New Brighton can be seen in the distance.
