Cranes along Queens Staith, River Ouse, York
Cranes along Queens Staith, River Ouse, York, taken 4 years ago
The smaller crane in the background of this photo is being considered for demolition. Over 100 years old this is a reminder of the once industrial heritage of this section of the Ouse, right in the heart of the City.

York Sea Cadets, who are based in the building nearby, have sought permission to demolish it as it requires work to make it safe. Having said that there is nothing there stopping anyone from walking around it so it's unclear just how dangerous it actually is.
