Wirral Smugglers, Wreckers and Pirates (Wirral History and Legend)

No reviews
The first authoritative, illustrated, full-length account of smuggling and related activities in Wirral. Covering the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, it represents the first book-length account concerning this important chapter in Wirrals heritage. Not only does it describe familiar facts in great detail - Mother Redcap and her smugglers tavern on the Wallasey shore, the labyrinth of smugglers tunnels stretching from the Red Noses in New Brighton throughout Wallasey, and the wreckers who used to prey upon Liverpool-bound shipping - it also covers the less well-known aspects of Wirrals piratical past, including smuggling in Parkgate and Heswall, and the swashbuckling adventures of Captain Fortunatus Wright - the Wallasey privateer.
