Birkenhead is a town in the county Borough of Wirral[?], Merseyside, on the left bank of the River Mersey, opposite Liverpool. The first Mersey ferry began operating from Birkenhead in 1150 when Benedictine monks built a priory there. The area was later used for as a sea port and for ship building as it was close to the naval activity of Liverpool.
