Just One Big Wheel
It would seem that big wheels are a thing of the moment., When I went over to Liverpool the other day they were just putting the finishing touches to this one for Christmas. Built at the top of Chavasse Park in Liverpool One, it actually stands on the roof of a five storey car park, over 100 tonnes of steel were used to reinforce the car park before the wheel could be erected. It stands at 82 metres above sea level and takes about 4 minutes to complete a revolution of the wheel.
In the background the new Hilton Hotel can just be made out and on the right is the One Park West building.
The next step is to try some photography from the top of the wheel, there seem to be some gale force winds tonight, I wonder if that has any effect on it, perhaps I'll wait for a calm day.
