Speke has been through some rough times in the past, but now things have changed for the better Here are a few photographs to show you what's been happening. Whilst there are still problems to be overcome here, Speke is working hard to improve itself and the fruits of our labours are just beginning to show. I've taken photographs around Speke to show the changes but if some look rather empty it’s because I waited for people and traffic to clear thinking the pictures would look better!
If you want to use any of the photos, please ask first to avoid copyright problems.
