Port Buoy in the Queen's Channel, Liverpool Bay
Port Buoy in the Queen's Channel, Liverpool Bay
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.

Q12 is the last of the red (port) marker buoys in the Queen's Channel before it becomes the Crosby Channel near Taylor's Bank. Its position is shown on navigation charts at approx 5331.85N, 310.15W +/- 50m.
