The oldest remaining part of the station building the wall to the rear of Platform 1 dates from 1849. At the time of its construction the 47m arched trainshed was the largest single-span roof structure in the world. There have been numerous refurbishments over the decades the most recent in 1984<

    Wow.Kat..... that was very interesting to read...

    My second time to Liverpool, I arrived by train from London... I stepped off on Platform 7..and found it a lovely open train station of a feel...

    I am glad to read that they will keep it stone and in the feel of the historic one..

    2008 sure has brought about new development there.. Liverpool won't look the same at all... The times are sure a changing....
