    Default woodside tunnel birkenhead

    Birkenhead Woodside railway station was opened on 31 March 1878 to replace the increasingly inadequate passenger facilities provided at Birkenhead Monks Ferry station. The terminus was built further inland than originally conceived, in order to avoid demolition of the Mersey ferries workshop, situated on the bank of the river. The station built on an east-west axis with the lines servicing the station came from the south. The station was accessed via a half mile tunnel from the south which curved to the east into the station. This fell in line with the Liverpool termini, with only Liverpool Exchange lacking tunnel access.
    The station was very busy right up to the reshaping of British Railways in the 1960s. The programme of route closures in 1963, known as the Beeching Axe, included the closure of three of Merseyside's mainline terminal stations: Liverpool Exchange and Liverpool Central high-level, and also Woodside terminal station. It officially closed on the 5th of November 1967.
