The Former St Andrew's Dock, Hull
The Former St Andrew's Dock, Hull
St Andrew's Dock opened in 1883, directly to the west of William Wright Dock. It was originally designed for the coal trade but by the time it opened in 1883 it was earmarked solely for the use of the fishing industry which was undergoing a period of rapid expansion. The dock was in use until 1975 when, with the expansion of the freezer trawler fleet it was decided to move the fish docks to new buildings at Albert Dock and St Andrew's Dock was closed
Partial filling in of the dock began in the 1980s. The western part has been redeveloped into the St Andrews Quay retail park while the eastern part of the dock, the area in the vicinity of the lockpit, was designated a Conservation Area in 1990 due to its social historic interest. The dock entrance, and some shipping company buildings remain in situ, but the remains of the dock are completely silted up.
