SJ3392 : Liverpool: Stanley Dock Warehouse

taken 11 years ago, near to Seacombe, Wirral, Great Britain

Liverpool: Stanley Dock Warehouse
Liverpool: Stanley Dock Warehouse
Stanley Dock was completed in 1848, and this view was taken looking down Dock (Regent) Road towards the dock bridge, with the now derelict northern Stanley Dock Warehouse on the left. The high brick wall with inbuilt keeps was designed to deter theft from the warehouse.

The rate of dereliction of the structure can be assessed by comparing this image to David's SJ3392 : Leeds & Liverpool Canal bridge from the north from June 2005, where the wall to the left of the chimney is complete. By February 2007 part of the top of the wall has collapsed and the brickwork below the breach appears to be about to collapse too.

A much earlier archive photograph shows the road surfaced with granite setts, a railway line entering through the gates, and the name "N. Stanley Warehouse." clearly readable at the top of the wall where today there are just indecipherable white paint marks.
