Cargo being lifted by machine at a dock

Garston’s history dates back to medieval times. By the 18th century, the tiny settlement had become a small village. The oldest remaining buildings in Garston are Seafield Cottages – a series of four cottages dating back to the 1730s (or perhaps even earlier). Garston’s growth accelerated considerably when the dock opened, and the railway was built in the 19th century. Garston Dock remains as busy as ever today, handling 600,000 tonnes of cargo every year and benefiting from millions of pounds of investment in recent years.
