The history- Birkenhead Hydraulic Tower. Jesse Hartley, who was responsible for many of Liverpool's maritime structures – including the Albert Dock, designed the Central Hydraulic Tower and Engine House (the tower is an accumulator tower). Providing power for the movement of lock gates and bridges at Birkenhead Docks, it was completed in 1863. The 110 ft tower and building sustained considerable damage from bombing during the Second World War and was repaired in a functional, rather than architectural style. The large lantern at the top of the tower was not replaced. The building is now disused and in a dilapidated condition.
The explore- this explore was carried out just before it was sealed. Access was through a high window at the back. Security is now tight and the police are there within minutes due to the dangerous conditions .

Those ladders and stairs up to the top were frighteningly bad when I did it eight years ago, lord alone knows what they must be like now.
