    Default Clarence Dock Area


    Found this in a Clarence Dock rest room yesterday.
    Had one of these in our house "when I were lad".Cast iron kettle on the hob always on the boil,topped up every now and when it ran low with evaporation,Sunday dinner cooked in the oven,with the teatime scones,and in the winter evenings draw plates taken out,covered with a cloth and used
    as bedwarmers all with one fire

    Joe, Clarence Dock is filled in.
    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Alright I`ll give it it`s full title Clarence Graving Docks which are only filled in with water. See Dock gates thread.

    These are old railway lines which were used to feed the Clarence power station.The Clarence dock was eventually used to store coal in as it was discharged from trains and when the power station was demolished they filled the dock in with the rubble.

    This is the same room as the grate in the Clarence Graving Docks
    The mirrors in good nick, the shelf in the corner could be for a TV or the gas meter
