TA1029 : Wincolmlee, Hull

taken 9 years ago, near to Kingston Upon Hull, Great Britain

Wincolmlee, Hull
Wincolmlee, Hull
Wincomlee roughly follows the west bank of the meandering River Hull and has many disused or derelict warehouse buildings along its length, especially on the east side where businesses had access to wharves on the riverside. It was once a bustling street with a public baths and a great many pubs. No.260 Wincolmlee (the large building in the picture) has had the sign at the top painted over a number of times but the most readable name is that of the brewers Bass, Mitchells & Butlers Ltd. The company traded under this name from 1961 when Mitchells & Butlers merged with Bass, Ratcliff and Gretton Ltd, until 1967 when another merger with Charrington United created Bass Charrington, later shortened to Bass PLC. The smaller white building this side of the warehouse looks older and possibly more interesting but so far I've not been able to find out anything about it.
