This was a wonderful explore, just noticed there is no reports from this on NWEX even thou everyone did it back then! Still one of my most enjoyed to date. First did this in 2006, banging it on 28 for the first time and it went onto be very popular.

Sadly was pulled down in late 2009, the large silo is still there, grade 2 listed, i dont think thats used now thou.

A wonderful slide show from English Heritage of the constuction from 1955 - 1957 can be seen here

From the outside it looked small but there was about 7 floors all rammed with stuff


How good is this chain








Looking out to the silo, Goodison Park also in the distance










From the top floor


The conveyor, this went right down onto the docks


Gutted when this went!!

Nice! I joined 28DL in 2006, but don't remember seeing this posted, although I did trawl through hundreds of posts when I joined up.........
