From Widness the railway again diverges to the right, and after passing the stations of Fidler’s Ferry and Sankey Bridges, we arrive at

We again return to Widness, and in pursuing our journey towards Liverpool, pass the stations of Ditton and Halewood, to Speke, the point of deviation of the Edge Hill portion of the London and North Western line.

Keeping to the water’s edge, however, we next come to Garston (telegraph station), a considerable town on the Mersey, having a population of 4,720. Continuing along the riverside we pass the station at Mersey Road, through Aigburth to Otter’s Pool, and through Toxteth Park to the station of St. Michael’s, and thence to the southern suburbs of Liverpool at the Brunswick Docks, from whence passengers are taken into the town to James Street, by omnibuses.
