River Hull

Hull. Fri 17 Feb 2017


 Another view of the Artic Corsair, taken from inside the Streetlife Museum
 The High St continues north of Drypool Bridge. The bushes at right are in front of a disused dry dock

 The disused dry dock

 This was the entrance to Queen's Dock and the crane and some other buidlings are listed. Queen's Dock itself was filled in as public gardens in the 1930s

 Queen's Dock Entrance

 

 To the north is another former dry dock, the Yorkshire Dry Dock. The roadway used to be Charlotte St which led to the old North Bridge

 In the early evening we went across the foot bridge by the Deep, the Hull Millennium Bridge

 

 

 The Deep, River Hull, the Humer and new buildings in the Old Town

 River Hull and Tidal Barrier

 

 'Hello' on the TIdal Barrier - an artwork where people speak and their words appear in lights - and The Deep

 

Nelson St: 'Voyage'a memorial to those who worked and died at sea, was a 2006 gift from the Icelandic fishing town of Vik. Stolen in 2011 and replaced in 2012

William de la Pole was the first Mayor of Hull in 1331 to 1335. His 1879 statue by Hull sculptor William D. Keyworth is stone and so not worth stealing.
