BWB Maintenance Yard, slipway haulage shed
This site was originally the Liverpool Lighterage Co. but from 1972 was owned by British waterways Board. There was a maintenance slipway with a series of interconnected winches driven by a Foden steam engine in the shed. This was latterly disconnected and replaced by a tramway motor with controller. The engine was removed in 1987 and is now on display at the National Waterways Museum, Gloucester.
