This is hardly worth sticking up but I'm doing it anyway because I like this sort of place, so others may too. All cities have these marginal wastelands, usually around railways, canals or road junctions. This one is an expanse of dereliction between Hawthorn Road and the Leeds-Liverpool canal in Bootle comprising a large former bus depot shed along with several smaller sheds, retail units and little office blocks. All trashed and empty, but nevertheless good for a summer evening mooch when the buddleia is in flower.

As far as I know this place has been demolished now, anyone been past recently?

I've been in a bunch of times (maybe not the most exciting to explore, but it was great for photoshoots!). The way the bus depot deteriorated so badly in such a short time is insane - when you look at Georgie's photos it's hard to believe only a few years have passed.

Went by a couple of weeks ago - looked like the sheds were mostly gone although some of the roadside buildings were still there.

Not that it matters, but I didn't know this place had been covered before - can you provide a link to the report?

The oldest report I can find is on DerelictPlaces from 2012 but the image links no longer work. I messaged him asking if he still had the images but he didn't find them: https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/industrial-sites/23490-former-liverline-buildings-liverpool-august-2012-a.html

I found a big set of photos from just before it closed in 2012, it's insane how rapidly it decayed in 6 years...

I should probably have done a report but I don't post here as much as I should, I'll try and get round to it at some point!

Thanks for that, I don't really look at DerelictPlaces - boy, someone really likes busses!

Pity its gone really - rather good for a relaxed mind-in-neutral sort of mooch.
