Footnotes

  • Inscribed " Presented to, His Worship the Mayor of Birkenhead, Alderman T.Thompson, J.P., on the opening of Rock Ferry Pier and Landing Stage, 30th June 1899."

    Engraved with an image of the Pier and Landing stage and a Mersey Ferry

    The Rock Ferry pier and landing stage were opened on Friday 30th June 1899 by the Mayor, Alderman J T Thompson at 5.30pm, public services started at 6.30pm. Birkenhead Corporation operated the triangular service between Rock Ferry, New Ferry and Liverpool using two of the smaller existing Birkenhead boats.

    After the closure of the ferry, the pier and landing stage remained in use, with various organisations paying to use it, most notably being the training ships Conway and Indefatigable. In 1955 Cammel Laird bought the pier from Birkenhead Corporation and it was used as part of a tanker cleaning and degreasing berth.

    The bridge was removed and the landing stage broken up in March 1957.
