Quite possibly, I know they used the area around the Tobacco warehouse in Liverpool, but it wouldnt surprise me if they used this too.

It was the ones over where the sub is.
The ones being converted to flats.
So wallasey dock road is the answer wink

There were some small scenes on the wallasey side.
I remember the film crews being there, its when they were
derelict. The main parts were over in Liverpool wink

The old mills in Birkenhead (where they have been converted into flats) were used to film a Flip N Fill video iirc??

Not sure why they would use Birkenhead as a location for a movie though, especially as Liverpool has much better locations.

Strangely i recorded 51st State the other night so i
could check it again. At about 30 mins in you get
the close up below.



Click me HMS Onyx - Falklands Veteran



And Finally further in the movie you get a night shot.
(Notice the Tops - Small turret shapes on the corners)



This Picture was taken in 2005 (Meeshes Car)


Click Me

Now Up to date :



See the Turrets on the top like the night shot above?


And this is the other side of the building from where the
submarine was cut up at the dock side.



I hope that helps wink
So now you can see The 51st State was filmed over this side,
as short as the shots are they still were on this side.
