Liam:
I'll report back!

I will be very interested to hear, and thanks for the link.

We have pretty much the same itinerary floating around for a few years now, and Harlech is the only castle to have escaped me so far, it is trickier to get to by public transfport if you are on the North side of Snowdonia.

I hear you. We're only in Cheshire (in the middle of a Liverpool / Jodrell Bank / Pontcysyllte triangle) but Harlech is just a little *too* far for a day trip with our kids. Whereas two weeks ago we were easily able to add on fish & chips in Conwy at the tail end of a day out elsewhere in North Wales.

Is the general consensus that Liverpool doesn't care much about the WH status for the docks, and would prefer to cash in on development funds? I mean, tourism in Liverpool is probably higher due to football/soccer or The Beatles anyway, and the docks would still be there under some kind of National Trust symbol (whatever the national protection is).

The designs from Liverpool are miserable. I understand they want to develop the area, but landing an UFO in the buffer zone is not the right way to go. So, yeah, delisting seems right.

In comparison Dresden was a joke and probably a wrong decision looking back. I think the problem with delisting is that the process is too arbitrary, albeit if Liverpool goes ahead with the redevelopment greatly deserved.
