Whilst I agree with your sentiments Belvoir, I cannot agree with the facts.

The source of the Mersey is not buried under concrete. Neither is it squeezed between the M60 and Knightsbridge, where the Mresey is allegedly formed by Tame meeting the Goyt; as many would have you believe. The source of the Mersey is actually way up in Compstall where the Etherow joins forces the Goyt.

If you don't believe me, check any map prior to, say, 1900 for confirmation. The source of the Mersey appears to have been stolen by the old Stockport Borough Council some years before their abolition in 1974.
