im up for a mooch and a bit of a clamber, i thought the old Birkenhead brewery was Marriots Motorcycles , and over the road to it , which is DJ Vickers car body repairers , site , could be wrong , looks very inviting were about is it in Birkenhead.
seems very familiar , is down Corpy road area.

correct.

I've seen it before and thought about it too, but just not had the time to go and explore.

If you take a look at pic 1 you will see that there is strange oddities with the building such as,one half of the building is different to the other and also has different windows and levels.This might suggest that either the left or right side has been added to the original building.Like Ducko said,we had a short explore of this place and found nothing to suggest what the building was or used for.

I don't know this building, but what a magnificently ornate chimney! Birkenhead Brewery was in Oxton Rd., just uphill from Tetbury St., opposite the white building with the ornate frontage. I spent a lot of time as a child at my grandmother's house in Windsor St. & at times the smell (not unpleasant) was overpowering.
