    The remnants of the old cattle pier by the tunnel vents in Birkenhead where sheep and cattle were unloaded from the cattleboats from Ireland to be taken to the abattoir
    There is a story I heared of a couple of lads working on the vents removing a couple of planks from the pier and every time sheep walked across there always a couple missing by the time they reached their destination. The lads were eventually found out.
