Edges take all forms. From officially designated boundaries to informally appropriated demarcations, from the sharp lines of manmade routes to the fuzzy outlines of natural features and reclaimed landscapes. The edges explored in this chapter are those where the suburbs are disrupted by the River Mersey that flows along the southern rim of the city. It is undeniably an edge, only to be crossed via bridges. It is also the connecting thread that weaves together woodlands, meadows, artificial lakes, flooded gravel pits, and so much more. No mere frozen lines on a map, edges are dynamic forcefields for the identity of place and its people.
