Bedford Rd East is the road that leads to the old terminal.
The bit that shocked me a little was:
"At the end of the crane there's a tyre that swings 120 feet in the air over the Mersey and kids as young as seven are playing out there."
Dont their parents know where they are?!!?!
....but at the end of the cay, where do you draw the line? Close the motorways because people want to cross them?
Yeah you are correct, the crane sits at the end of the oil terminals jetty. It has been disused for at least twenty six years (I know this because it has never been used in my life time.) The main reason I was interested in this place was I used to walk down that jetty when I was about 12. The main reason I used to go down there was because there was never really any effort to block the place off.
I know I was daft for doing it but when your young you don't realize the dangers involved in such an adventure.
This crane sprung to mind when I started looking at the urban exploration on this site and thought it may be of interest to you guys if I were to do a little more research on the place and take some photography on the place. Although I have been browsing through site after site, I don't seem to be able to find anything about this place. Its almost as if its a ghost stood in the Mersey!
