Description
Not built as landmark for shipping, as some think, Grimsby Dock Tower is in fact a tall water tower to supply hydraulic power to the docks lock gates. Built in 1867, and standing at 309 ft in hieght, this the second tower built to operate gates. A far smaller one had been built previously, but was found to be insufficient to power the locks. #dock_tower #docks #fishing #Grimsby #maritime #port #shipping #tower
