I'm still a bit sceptical about that metal belonging to the Great Eastern as I believe it is on the North side of where the pier was. The proximity of the rivets over an area (not even a single or twin line) would also be unusual for a ship, I'd be more inclined to think it was a plate off the pier itself.

The only detailed description of the position of the Great Eastern was that it was south of the Pier. To this day you can see the remains of the roadway that was built down to the river where the Great Eastern was. This roadway is immediately south of New Ferry Terrace, it has had a house built in the middle now.

In answer to another post, the Great Eastern was massive, it was over one eighth of a mile long and would easily hold that number of people and horses.



After many years of trying to find the exact position the Great Eastern was broken up, I finally have some proof that it was indeed a distance south of New Ferry Pier, perhaps even a bit further south than I believed.
