Denhall Quay, Little Neston
Denhall Quay, Little Neston
The remains of Denhall Quay which served the Denhall Colliery. Mining probably started here in the 17th century prior to the opening of Wirral Colliery but all activity in this area had ceased by the early 20th century. Now also abandoned by the river which served it, as the Dee is completely silted up at this point, leaving just the red sandstone quay stranded in a sea of marsh grass as far as the eye can see.
