U-Boat Surfaces At Woodchurch Ferry

An historic German U-Boat (submarine) is now the centre-piece of a new exhibition at Woodside Ferry Terminal on The Wirral side of the River Mersey.

The U-Boat, number U-534 is only one of four remaining in the world and is now available for viewing at an exhibition at Woodside. A specially built viewing platform along with inserted glass panels and interior illumination allow for a thorough viewing of the vessel. Also on display is one of three T11 Zaukonig advanced homing torpedoes that were found inside the U-Boat.

Also included in the exhibition is an enigma coding machine which was used by the German military to encrypt their wartime messages.
