Low Dock, North Shields

  • Description

    "This Grade II listed early 19th century graving dock is 65 metres long and 20 metres wide with stepped stone sides and a single staircase. A graving dock is defined as a basin-like structure that is large enough to admit a ship and that can be pumped dry for work on the ship's bottom. This is the oldest surviving graving dock on Tyneside and, in this photograph is viewed from Union Stairs." Photo by Geoff Holland, 2024.
