Park Lane Railway Goods Station
Park Lane was the world's first goods terminus on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway serving the south end Liverpool Docks. The station was opened in 1830. Its initial name was Wapping Station. The goods station was accessed from Edge Hill rail junction in the east of the city via the 1.26 mile Wapping Tunnel.
The goods station suffered from heavy German air raids during the Second World War, being mostly rebuilt after the war. It was closed in 1972 and subsequently demolished.
