16:00 visit. Another shortish bus ride from Moreton and I soon located this smart modern JD. (The night before in this area, I had no luck finding the place!). Located amongst a myriad of large leisure/retail outlets, a short stroll from Conway Park Station (Wirral Line) and just behind the bus terminus. Nice place, a few in and some interesting pictures of the local area in times past.
