On this walk Arthur is in the Northwest of England. He kicks off in Liverpool, Britain’s most important wartime port, which landed vital food and armaments from the Atlantic Convoys.

But the port’s importance put a target on the city’s back and after London, Liverpool became Britain’s most bombed city. In the city centre, Arthur visits Derby Square and the famous ‘Bombed Out Church’ to discover how the city was flattened during the deadly ‘May Blitz’.
