Just seen the article:
And just sent an e-mail back:
I read with interest your well written article 'Maritime Heritage was hidden beneath our feet' but yet again, I am astounded at the stance of Liverpool City Council when they allow such amazing history to 'be covered up again for future generations'.
I run an up and coming website, Underground Liverpool - http://www.undergroundliverpool.co.uk/
This is a work in progress website detailing the forgotten places around Liverpool, some well known, some never seen before by the general public.
Although the above article was written to show that the contractors have a free for all in covering up our history again, can this not be stopped?
A few years back, the new student block on Copperas Hill behind Lime Street station was found to have shafts running down from the surface to a massive tunnel system. This was little known to the public and the next day, the contractors decided to fill it in with concrete.
We have seen the flats at the bottom of Smithdown Lane/Mason Street in Edge Hill built over original tunnels causing lots of damage and losing part of the labyrinth forever.
Would you consider running an article in which contractors of hidden gems of our city have to be accountable for the heritage lost under their own 'patch'?
Finding a historic site and recording it is not good enough, preservation for future generations is the answer.
