Closer view of the steps leading down to the waterside seating at Pier Head, showing the public interest in this newly-reopened area.
The canal runs in a tunnel below the central part of the Pier Head, where newly-laid grass surrounds the statue of Edward VII mounted on his horse.
The canal emerges in front of Liver Building and the Alfred Lewis Jones Memorial. Another area of paving and seating is still being completed here.
