Images on this site are arranged into rough areas by location as in my book 'Still Occupied', available on Blurb. Eventually this site will contain all the images in that book and more.
The gateway from Princes Dock St into Hull Trinity House, was the entrancew to Trinity House School, but now leads into a public car park, Zebedee's Yard, named in memory of Zebedee Scaping, headmaster of that school from 1854 to 1909.
Hull Trinity House was officially founded as a guild in 1369, though it had apparently already been in existence for a couple of hundred years. It was associated with Holy Trinity, Hull's parish church and is a charity for masters, pilots and seamen with a school, Trinity House School, almhouses, grants to needy seafarers and an outdoor education centre. It has an extensive collection of objects and records, including personnel records for the entire Hull Fishing Fleet from 1946 on. It gets an income for its work from a number of shops and office properties.
Trinity House School and this gateway was built here in 1842, modernised in 1956 and extended upwards in 1973, but the school moved out to George St in 2013 and the buildings inside the yard were demolished to provide a public car park. The gateway was Grade II listed in 1952.
