If your meaning a cement manufacturing site/factory where raw materials are brought in from a quarry and processed and bagged, etc, etc. The size of such a place would be memorable, can't say i remember anything like that, thats not saying it didn't exist. Could it be you are thinking more on the lines of a Ready Mix type of place where they mix the concrete and deliver to site. Also if any construction work was going on in the area at that time, it wasn't unusual for the builders to set up their own temporary concrete mixing site.

It was when they did the breakwater. It was the dip where the tunnel is.

I remember it but I thought it was where they made those weird concrete things that they used on the enbankment at Moreton to slow the speed of the incoming tide down,to save damage and stop the tide picking up the sand and dumping it elsewhere as those groynes do

I have seen pictures of it, so worth looking - they are around somewhere.

That was in the dip adjacent to the subway to the foreshore. The Contractor was Alfred McAlpine. They were definitely there in Summer 1985. Might have an old picture in a drawer somewhere...........

The precast concrete units in the picture were/are called Reef Blocks (there were type I and II to achieve interlock). The other type of precast unit (like the ones up against the wall by the subway, and at Harrison Drive, and lining Leasowe Bay slipway edges, and at various other locations around Wirral, were/are called Diode Units (again, two types were made).
