Liverpool Bay, Red Marker Buoy (C2) in Crosby Channel
Liverpool Bay, Red Marker Buoy (C2) in Crosby Channel
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 red (port) markers. Its number is not visible from this angle but a red buoy C2 is shown on navigation charts at this position (approx 5331.87N, 309W +/- 50m).
