Liverpool, landmarks, liverpool-herculaneum-dock-7.8x10.8-300
Location: Liverpool

Category: landmarks

Address: Herculaneum Dock, Dingle, L.8 - 1907

  As described in "Liverpool Artist - J. Hamilton Hay"

The Herculaneum Pottery Works stood in the south of the coastline at Dingle where the Herculaneum Dock was, before it was filled in and used for housing. In the year 1794 Messrs. Abbey and Graham purchased a small copper works which had been there for twenty years previous to that date, and converted them into a pottery. Two years afterwards they transferred their interest to a joint-stock company ; and when, in the year 1800, the manufacture of china was added, the style of the Company became the Herculaneum China Ware Manufactory. The manufacture of pottery had by this time ceased to exist in its original home on Shaw's Brow, and the attempt to revive it under better conditions of transit, and with modern appliances and processes, seemed to promise success. But the hope was not realized, and in the year 1833 the company was dissolved ; the property ultimately passed into the hands of the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board, and the site was utilized for the Herculaneum Dock in the year 1864.

Address: The Overhead Railway Station Park Road, Dingle, L.8 - 1900

  I used to go here nearly every day in the 1950s because my Gran lived in Brunny Gardens and the overhead was the best way to get there but, looking at this picture, I can't remember anywhere in this area where there could have been trees.

Address: Overhead Railway Dock Road, Centre-South, L.8 - 1900

  In 1893 the world's first electric elevated urban railway, the Liverpool Overhead Railway was opened. It ran from Dingle, in the south (the station was a the bottom of Park Road, next to the Gaumont cinema), along the length of the Dock Road to Seaforth, in the north. It boasted the world's first all-electric colour light signalling system. Affectionately known as "The Docker's Umbrella" it provided passage to all the docks until 1955 when a report into the structure of the viaduct showed major repairs were needed that the company could not afford. The railway closed at the end of 1956 and the structure was dismantled the following year.
