    IIRC I heard that when they were redoing the St James railway station they accidentally tunnelled through into a cavern that did not appear on any maps but turned out to be an under ground submarine pen used by the Royal Navy during ww2.

    The accident lead to the station being closed for some time and plans for its expansion being abandoned (given that the military were not keen at sharing their secret bas with thousands of commuters)

    I assume you mean James St. And also the loop line in the 1970s.

    I find this undergound sub base rather far fetched. Built in WW2? And no one noticed? Mmmmm

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    I was under the impression it was a natural cave that had been converted and it had not been used after ww2 rather than it was built then.
