The 'scrape' and Hale Marsh at very high tide
A high tide of 9.7m was predicted. With a westerly wind as well, we thought it might be more impressive than usual. While the river raced in about 2 hours before high tide, it did not produce a bore - apparently this does happen occasionally on the Mersey.
However the scrape and Hale Marsh were engulfed at high tide.
