Laver’s Liverpool and Irish Sea Tide Timetable.
It costs about £2, has about 20 pages, is available from most chandlers or direct from Laver and is the size of a small diary. HW Lytham is approx. -0010 Liverpool. Most people who sail the Irish sea carry Laver.

Good sailing in a difficult area. The latest Pilot mentions Liverpool, Preston and Fleetwood but nothing in between. It is similar to the Lincolnshire coast between Tetney and Wainfleet.
