    Arrow White Tomkins & Courage Silo (day and night pics) - stanley docks -

    another cracker of a place to explore and a nice height its just a little dangerous on the top with open holes for the hoppers and i wouldnt like to fall in because youd probably never get out as there half filled with water


    White Tomkins & Courage Ltd manufactured a number of products - one listing describes them as 'Distillers of Essential Oils, Fruit and Flavouring Essences, Manufacturer of Fine Chemicals and Flower Oils'. Their mills were used to produce tapioca, maize and flaked rice.

    With imported raw ingredients arriving from afar, storage facilities had to be built at docks around the country. The silo built at Stanley Dock allowed imported grain to be carried off visiting ships and stored for later transport.

    Below the silo, a railway siding connected the dockside to the mainline network. This meant that hoppers could be filled when passing underneath the silo and then the grain transported to mills and factories for processing. In 1964, R&W Paul merged with White Tomkins & Courage to form Pauls & Whites Ltd, but the Stanley Dock silo retained it's original owner's name on the east wall.

    visited with a few buddies last september over various times of the day
