Albert Dock is a great reminder of Liverpool's Maritime past. Here you can see lots of different vessels moored up such as tall ships and colourful tug boats. The Dock is one of the great monuments to Victorian engineering and is the largest English Heritage grade I listed structure. Ken Martin, a young college lecturer led the battle to save the dock from demolition in the 1970's when plans were drawn up to bulldoze the whole complex. Thanks to Ken & a 50 million pound conversion the UNESCO World Heritage site has become a vibrant area for waterside eating, shopping and perusing.
