    Great Joe. Isn't that the Tranmere Oil Terminal? I thought the old pier at Rock Ferry went years ago.

    I think there's a small marina further down. I think there used to be a boating club there. Dunno about a ?10,000,000 marina, sounds like more pie in the sky stuff. Heard of some geat schemes in Wirral, only to see them disappear.

    The Echo report even suggested that the ferries might be able to call at the Pier - they would have to put the landing stage back for that to make it possible. All rather unlikely.

    The final ferry sailing operated by Birkenhead Ferries (It wasn't Mersey Ferries then) using the UPTON departed Rock Ferry for Liverpool on 30th June 1939.

    According to TB Maund's excellent Mersey Ferries Vol 1 - the war probably saved the Rock Ferry Pier and landing stage from demolition. The stage was used for landing purposes from private small craft etc after the war.

    The pier was sold to Cammell Laird inititially to facilitate the establishment of the tanker cleaning berth.

    The Landing Stage was removed in 1957 and broken up on the nearby beach.
