SE7423 : Victoria Lock

near to Goole, East Riding of Yorkshire, Great Britain

Victoria Lock
Victoria Lock
One of two usable entrances to Goole docks, big enough for ocean-going ships. The remains of Ouse Lock can be seen on the left. The area was busy up to the 1970s with coal-carrying container craft called 'Tom Puddings,' each of which can carry 35 tons. 60 of them sank in Ouse Lock in 1960. This led to the introduction of a false bow called a 'jebus' when being towed.
