If by that you mean the pre-programmed things on your scanner then they are of no real use to you in Wallyton - they are programmed for the American market. If the radio is typical of other unidens you won't be able to re-assign those specific searches but there may be custom search ranges you can set that will better suit the UK spectrum.

From Wallyton you should easily pick up Ringway and Speke as well as have a huge volume of airways traffic within range.
Locally there are numerous taxi and transport firms using analogue and digital repeaters (Billinge Hill and Winter Hill TX sites give good coverage across Wallyton and beyond).
If data is your thing then you also have the main Northern pager gateway tx site nearby.
No idea about CB usage but if anywhere has it then your area will given the close proximity of the major car parks at Eccles Interchange and Thelwall Viaduct

01:15 Comfort break at Poplars Truck Stop - not a peep on 453.8375 MHz at the moment...no analogue, no DMR squitters, . So it's either not used at this time of day or it's not Wallyton

Only things between 453.00000 and 454.00000 at this time are:

453.15000 Cap+ squitters
453.31250 Cap+ squitters

Nothing for that freq in Warrington/Birchwood on WTR. On return journey north in the early hours today two users were chatting - one was in a van and the other walking (and is somewhat unfit judging by his breathing!). They mentioned Birchwood as though it was a different entity so they could be specific to one of the three main areas? Also mentioned taxi stands if that helps. Screen showed five tx idents - 3 single digit, one 3 digit and 1 reserved system ident.
