    Stanley dock is broken down into various explores. For clarification the locations of each:

    Hydraulic Tower
    Original North Warehouse
    Tobacco Warehouse
    Grain Silo
    Bascule bridge

    Originally went with Tristen and Needles and then a return visit with Chodjinn led to a few more discoveries and angles.

    Big thanks to Chodjinn for finding the access into the rooms housing the lift machinery and a few other bits i'd missed the first time! He may not like heights all that much but he's certainly an inquisitive little bugger and good to have along on explores with lots of nooks & crannies.


    Background:

    The Stanley Dock warehouse was built in 1848. The dock itself links to the Liverpool and Leeds Canal. It also stands apart from all the other Docks in that it was built on the landside of the dock road.

    Directly opposite the Stanley Dock Warehouse stands The Tobacco Warehouse. Built in 1900 it was the biggest building in the world at the time. Even today, it remains the world's largest brick warehouse. While the Tobacco warehouse is partly used as a popular Sunday market, both buildings await much-needed restoration and redevelopment.


    The Stanley Dock is a dock, on the River Mersey and part of the Port of Liverpool it is situated in the Vauxhall area in the northern end of the dock system. It is connected to Leeds and Liverpool Canal to the east and Collingwood Dock to the west.

    Designed by Jesse Hartley, it opened in 1848. At the start of the Twentieth Century the Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse was built on the in-filled south half of the dock.

    Built in 1852-4 this is one of the first dock warehouses to be designed for rail transport and the use of hydraulic power. [courtesy of wiki]
