Hi Steve

Yes, it was all the Port could afford at the time. No 1 is really a Coaster Berth for vessels upto 6000 DWT, which works very well for the cargos we ship from that berth.

Hi Watch1Foy2

Good to see the Battleship Wharf from that angle - I hadn't realised the quay had a 'dog leg' in it - I only ever view from Bates Staithes :-o
