SE7423 : Victoria Lock

taken 16 years ago, 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.
