Main Basin, Gloucester Docks
Main Basin, Gloucester Docks
The view is diagonally across the Main Basin (opened in 1827) towards the dry docks (1827 and 1853) Link in the opposite corner. The building at the centre is Alexandra Warehouse Link (1870). On the right are modern apartment buildings designed in keeping with the look of the warehouses. These are on the site of the former West Quay warehouses, which were built in the 1830s and demolished in the 1960s. Llanthony Warehouse Link (1873) on the left now houses the National Waterways Museum. To its right can be seen Llanthony lift bridge Link through which the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal (1827) leaves the basin towards the Severn estuary. LinkExternal link
