    Default Harland & Wolff in Liverpool

    I'm sure most people have heard of the huge Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast that built Titanic, but I didn't realise they had much of a presence in Liverpool until I decided to explore a few dead-end roads along the docks.

    I was amazed to find that the storage warehouse visible from the dock road was once a Harland & Wolff foundry. What a fantastic looking building! Unfortunately I couldn't get inside, and I doubt there'd be anything 'original' in there worth seeing anyway, but I'm glad this historic building has been kept.

    Does anybody know any more about what Harland & Wolff did in Liverpool? Did they own/use any substantial areas of the dock estates? As far as I'm aware they did repairs and maintenance, but I can't find much else out.

    Snap I think it was an engineering works which manufactured spare and replacement parts for the refits.


    But don't quote me on that
