Just to let Members know the gremlins in the Dark Mode are back again today and the text is white on white in some areas rendering it  invisible but this issue is being addressed as we speak ... Meanwhile there is a CHANGE MODE button top left under the TIPF logo that can change theme from dark mode to white mode to enable you to still  read it . then back to dark mode if you prefer. Will get back to you all asap. ...

Gloucester Historic Docks...#1

I remember when I was young this was an extremely busy working docks, I used to stay with my aunt & uncle in Newent during the school holidays. My uncle drove a Bedford lorry and we used to spend quite a lot of time loading and unloading his lorry here, quite a lot of the loads were imported timber. All the old warehouses are now offices, eating places and flats etc.

I haven’t  been there for about 20 years  John ...it looks a busy area . Is it a bit like Liverpool’s Albert Docks ... a bit of a tourist area ?  It does seem that Narrowboats are popular everywhere though . Your photos certainly show that there has been a lot of regeneration work done in converting old warehouses etc .  The reflections on the last image are almost mirror like... I love all the potted plants  around the moorings of the narrowboats ... no matter where we are, we love a bit of garden don’t we ? ?

A really interesting set but I like the third image in particular for its reflection.  Preston Dock was the same and I have watched the area change over the last 30 years from a place where bananas and timber were imported to a commercial park and tourist area.  The final link disappeared earlier this year when the wood yard from which I sourced hardwoods for many years, closed down and was replaced by a Porche dealership.

Terrific pictures of a great inland dock John. I took something there in 1978 but cant remember what ! that was probably not long before they ceased as a commercial dock....but I was driving a Bedford although it was a TM  :) I think the style of those warehouses is very similar to the Tobacco warehouses at Bristol docks, and I have not seen them for years either!

Excellent set John, I think there's warehouses like this up and down the country that have been converted to housing...
