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.

Until recently a public right of way ran across the lock gate here, and led on beside the Humber to King George V Dock and beyond, coming to a disappointing dead end in the middle of nowhere.
This path around the south of Alexandra Dock was diverted in 2012 as a part of the development to allow Siemens to build wind turbine blades here and enable them to be transported more readily to offshore locations.
All the dockside buildings have since been demolished, including the tall posts at right which carry a sign across between them at their top, with the name Alexandra Dock, designed to be clearly visible to those navigating the Humber. There was a similar structure at the entrance to Victoria Dock.
