Grimsby Dock Tower
Pevsner says "THE DOCK TOWER, 1851-2 by J.W.Wild, is the most memorable building in Grimsby, a beacon for many miles...inspired by Siena Town Hall, but the crowning minaret is oriental. It was built as part of the hydraulic system to open the lock gates and operate cranes, the first major dock to use hydraulic power for this purpose. Of red brick, 309ft tall, taller than Lincoln Cathedral, it rises in an unbroken line to the corbelled-out top, surmounted by a further section again with a corbelled-out top...".
