Clarence Dock :: Shared Description

Clarence Dock was constructed in 1843 for the transportation of goods and commodities on barges to and from Leeds city centre, using the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and the Aire and Calder Navigation. Until recently the surrounding area was made up of Victorian industrial buildings, although the area suffered steady industrial decline throughout the second half of the 20th century as the mills and many of the heavier engineering works began to either close, move further out of town or scale-down and by the 1990s most of the buildings were derelict.

By the 1990s, the docks were barely used for the movement of any freight and most of the industrial buildings around the dock lay derelict. The building of the Royal Armouries Museum, which opened in 1996, marked the start of the redevelopment of the area as mixed-use development which hosts a large residential population in waterside apartments, as well as significant office and shopping developments.
