Still Occupied

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.

St Andrew's Dock was named after the patron saint of fishermen when it was opened in 1883, though most people in Hull new it as the 'Fish Dock' and knew when the wind was in the wrong direction and could smell it. But in 1972 it was decided to move what was left of the fishing industry to Albert Dock, and St Andrew's closed to shipping in 1975. It was part filled in four years after I took this picture and the western part of the site is now St Andrew's Quay Retail Centre. I was trespassing on the north side of the dock, but the Trans Pennine Trail goes across the bridge at the left of the picture - and then continues beside the Humber.
