Signs have now been introduced in Liverpool that commemorate Merseyside's Viking heritage.

These are the first non-Celtic dual language signs in the country, with United Utilities providing £1,200 to fund the installations, which are located around Thingwall in Wirral, reports the Liverpool Echo.

They are situated at the bottom of Cross Hill and the Landican roundabout, while two more are located on Irby Road and Pensby Road. The move to install them came after two other signs went missing

Professor Harding, a lecturer at Nottingham University, who worked to replace the signs, said: "I wanted the signs to show the importance of Thingwall’s Viking past, as it means assembly field in old Viking Norse, and was only given to large significant settlements."

Mr Harding explained that the two missing signs made him want to replace them with "something significant".

The installations could prove to be insightful for first time visitors to the area, who many not be fully aware of its Viking heritage.  ADNFCR-2754-ID-801388811-ADNFCR
