Dee Banks Gutter, Bagillt
Dee Banks Gutter, Bagillt
In the late 17th and 18th centuries Bagillt was a very busy port although its position meant that there was often some difficulty in reaching the deep water channel and boats could be held in port for days waiting for tide and wind. Bagillt had two quays, one known as 'Dee Banks Gutter', which handled most of the passenger trade, including at one time a passenger ferry to Parkgate on the Wirral, while Bagillt Dock to the south-east handled the cargo
The Dee Banks Gutter appears to have been the main quay at Bagillt which, during the 19th century, had a wharf along the north-west side on land reclaimed from the saltmarsh, with a railway siding connecting it to the Dee Banks Leadworks. (CPAT)
