Alpha Buoy and Taylor's Bank
Alpha Buoy and Taylor's Bank
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.

The Alpha buoy is shown on navigation charts at approx 5331.9N, 39.4W +/- 50m. It marks the transition from the Queen's Channel to the Crosby Channel, near Taylor's Bank.
