Is it absurd to compare the Mersey with the Nile, or Stockport Viaduct with the Pyramids of Giza? Perhaps it is. Yet the pyramids are the remains of a dead civilisation which became a historical backwater. The industrial civilisation which started on the Mersey’s banks changed the world physically, culturally and musically – and in India and China it is still doing so today.
Mersey: The river that changed the world, published by Liverpool’s Bluecoat Press to mark Capital of Culture 2008, was a richly illustrated book that explored these connections through a series of specially commissioned essays from writers, journalists and experts in fields as diverse as srchaeology, history, music, wildlife and architecture.
In this chapter Deborah Mulhearn takes a look at how traders, travellers and locals have crossed the River Mersey.

Case Study: Eaves Brook Bridge
This case study is part of a specially written series focusing on our local action projects. They are designed to show you how some of our best projects were delivered. Each case study provides background information, examines the original project idea, methodology, funding information, looks at who was involved, and draws out lessons learned from the experience.
We hope these case studies will prove useful and inspirational, especially for those delivering similar work.
This case study focuses on the Eaves Brook Bridge project in Grange Valley, Preston, Lancashire. This project replaced a vandalised bridge in Grange Valley. A design for the new bridge was developed through involving local schoolchildren in animation workshops.
