Gantry Crane, Former Whessoe Fabrication Yard

  • Description

    "The oil rig module fabrication yard now stands deserted. Behind is the Transporter Bridge. To the right stands Dock Point Clock Tower soon to be engulfed by the new Middlesbrough College. The clock tower has a clock on only three faces. The north face is blank. The story is either the benefactor, a local industrialist whose premises were to the north near the river, ran out of money, or he didn't want his employees clock watching."
