Birkenhead Priory

I’ve been to the Birkenhead Priory twice in the past. The tower was in the process of being restored so we weren’t able to visit it. Last weekend we went to the Wirral trams.

The Priory is the oldest building in Merseyside, build in 1150. The tower is a Victorian addition to the old monastery. Now is open to the public. There was a survey done by the specialists, they tested all 3,000-3,500 bricks to see which ones have issues. After the survey, around 500 bricks were restored or changed.
