Work will start on cutting up the German sub U534 today at 10am, using a diamond wire cutter. It's a long process, four sections will go to the Woodside Ferry Terminal by floating crane where it will be part of a new attraction opening in the summer, there will be viewing galleries and you can walk through it. They recently had to pump it because it still had thousands of gallons of old diesel in it!

i hope they mess up and end up having to weigh it in, its a pile of shit, i like historic stuff and i belive that things of importance etc should be preserved, but this has no valve of History , just rust.

This is where it will be beached



They or the Tram drivers reacon they need something down that
way or woodside may as well close.

I'm sure the money could have been better invested in
a "Virtual" Sub you can walk around on a computer wink

I would rather spend my money on a visit to a new sub
with no connection to the wirral and see all the lights
and switches, than visiting a sub that's old battered and
i still have no idea what the connection to the wirral is.

Bring back the 1 oclock Gun i say smile

What you reckon 10 to go and visit it ??

Its a WWII Sunken German Sub Mark - its main purpose is so people can walk round it and gloat with the knowledge that we fooked 'em good raftl

There where the Plymouth and Onyx downt there too, but I belive evn parts of those where off limits to public as some of the technology was still in use raftl

Haaaa so no connection at all other than it was
lying on the bottom of the ocean.

And it never fired a shot in anger.
They could have made something up like it was Hitlers little
getaway sub or something.

Who's fitting the Bill ?

the Plymouth was used by an a veterans club were they used to do armature radio and pretend that the Germans were comming.i know this as my slightly insane father(love him really)was a member ,they also used to assist the public on tours.You wouldnt believe the red tape that all of the vessels that where at the east float are all still wrapped up in.they cant even gain accsess to them to retrieve the clubs property,something to do with it being crown property:<

look at the pic posted by mark of where it will go.
The wire mesh creates boxes
look at the bottom row of them, second from left, top right of the box.
It's a zombie poking his head up.
