I enjoy visiting Liverpool because of its heritage and culture which are so much of its present. The ferries are Liverpool!

IT IS NOT JUST A WIRRAL ICON. IT IS ALSO AN ANCIENT PIECE OF HISTORY DATING BACK TO THE 12TH CENTURY. I NOW LIVE IN CAMBRIDGE BUT MY TWO YOUNGEST DAUGHTERS WHO HAVE NOW GROWN UP LOVED GOING ON THE FERRY. THERE ARE MANY PLACES OF LESS SIGNIFICANCE WHICH HAVE HERITAGE SITE STATUS .SOMETHING WHICH SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE WOODSIDE

This ferry is known throughout the world. What a load of penny pinchers.

I can't believe that both Birkenhead and Liverpool shops will not miss out if this characterful crossing is lost from such a convenient location, possibly even from foreign tourists. My father sailed to war from Pier Head, and the combination of local people going about their usual lives and cruiseliners visiting to bring a boost to the economy of Liverpool surely is a healthy one that adds character to the Three Graces vicinity.

This is an important and historic transport link, which is should be recognised as playing a vital role in Merseyside tourism

It's iconic ... A huge tourist attraction & my neighbour when I was little, Molly Cash, was the best hostess in the cafe you could ever hope for

I can't imagine a future for the Mersey without its ferries. One by one they have been lost; to chop the service back to just one terminal on the Wirral shore would be an act of cultural vandalism and extremely shortsighted. the whole premise smacks of the infamous "Beeching Axe" - and look where that's left us now! Wales would give its collective eye teeth to have back some of its axed railway lines through spectacular scenery, the tourist value of which cannot be measured simply against running costs. The historic ferry service across the Mersey is in the same league.
Anyone proposing to axe it needs to reflect on its illustrious history (including the use of the ferries in the Zeebrugge raid) rather than focussing on what the bean=counter are saying.
