Wirral’s maritime economy really took off during the industrial era with the growth of shipbuilding in Birkenhead and Wallasey leading to a population explosion of dramatic proportions.
This period also resulted in the area becoming a world leader in maritime innovation and oceanography. The legacy of this heritage is clearly visible throughout the borough, but it is most evident along the Mersey Waterfront from Eastham up to New Brighton.
The Wirral Maritime Heritage trail tells the story of the people and places of interest through a series of plaques at key sites along the waterfront situated where ferry services are or were once located.
