Oldest building in Merseyside
Birkenhead Priory, a Benedictine Monastery established 1150 is the oldest building on Merseyside. Much of the original building still remains and other parts have been sympathetically restored. Admission is free.!Don't miss the great panormic views from the tower of the restored remains of St Mary's Church dated 1822, of Liverpool's waterfront
Here's a peep at the little street as you exit from the pump house...just a few shops but very quaint and I love all those old poster adverts.
This u-boat is unique, beingthe only U-boat to be raised from the sea-bed. her sinking marked the end of the Battle of the Atlantic in May 1945.
The Cloister Garden of the Priory houses graves of many prominent Birkenhead people including that of John Laird, co-founder of the World famous ship yard.
