The shower in power etc etc...
Isn't the methane plant still running?
And I've no idea about the safety, not my forte. Can't be good tho, eh?
A lot of the infill was removed to other places during the development for the IGF.
One of the conditions prior to building apartments, was for a survey to be carried out. The site was declared to be 'safe' and City Quay built.
For an update on more recent developers' plans for tower block apartments, residents' campaigns, compromises over provision of new parkland area, 'lost' archives, and general political chicanery, see:
The methane plant is still going,so,any future tenants will have to be non-smokers!
I didn't realise that not all the festival site was reclaimed land, some of it rose up over what was the Dingle fields.
Some great phots on the Liverpool Echo site, showing all the work going on... the Japanese garden looks fab so far
I'm horrified by this though
Mr Swift said: “We found one guy, with his kids, holding an axe and having a go at chopping a pavilion down.
“We stopped a few people in the act as well making a few attempts at burning the pavilion down.”
Great selection empeebee thanks. I haven't read through all of this thread but presumbably the intention is to reopen the site to the public again?

Looking at the lake without water,made me look for one with! (Trees looking pretty sparse though) And I wonder what happened to the S.S. Typhoo?
Maybe they work for the Echo...
The footpath, that follows the Southern perimeter fence is to be closed for a few months (this leads from Priory wood to the promenade).

Some demolition has taken place at the Northern-end of the site. The elevated walkways and train station near the dragon-slide have gone. I also never noticed the tubular-wall with the wooden 'moon gate', although mounds of earth may be covering it.
More progress photos on the official site now too
I used to work in the HO of an Office Licence Company who sponsored the Vine Garden in the Festival. One weekend we had a pressing of the grapes - great fun - on the site. The grape juice and water started to ferment in the bottles and a couple exploded. A warning had to be put out by the Echo and BBC.
