South Bridge Road, Kingston upon Hull
Housing at Hartley Bridge, St James Court and Lock Keeper's Court provides the backdrop for the swing-bridge over the original South Bridge Road between the Half-tide Basin and the now infilled Victoria Dock. The bridge, which carries the manufacturer's plate, inscribed 'Beecroft Butler & Co. Kirkstall Forge Leeds 1849', was probably designed by John B Hartley, consulting engineer to the Hull Dock Company. Grade II Listed Building LinkExternal link

Victoria Dock opened 1850 and closed to commercial traffic 1970. The following year the dock, except for the half-tide basin, was filled in. In 1987 the City Council acquired the dock estate from ABP (Associated British Ports). The same year, the Council entered into a partnership with Bellway Homes Ltd to redevelop the estate for new homes, a marina, a park, playing fields, community centre, maritime museum and community school. House-building commenced in 1988.
