Cammell Laird

Cammell Laird Shipyard, Birkenhead

Reliqua compiled an historical survey on the historic Cammell Laird shipyard on the River Mersey foreshore, facing Liverpool Docks on the opposite side of the river.

The shipyard covered an area of 47.7 hectares, including a west basin and three large dry docks, now disused. A complete inventory of buildings and dockyards was carried out, including dimensions, uses, and history, accompanied by photographs and site location diagrams. The inventory comprised an essential contribution for the best possible reuse of existing structures.
