    Central Docks, just north of the City Centre I think.

    Collingwood Dock, next to Stanley Dock, isn't it?

    Howie - absolutely love your photo, the colours are amazing!!

    If anyone's interested in visiting it, it's quite easy to get to, although it's choc-full of pigeon crap. The first time I went there it was night-time, and they'd all gone in to roost... an experience I can tell you!




    Pendulum housing


    Interesting grafitti!!


    Clockface drive gears




    Bell room

    Unfortunately the clock mechanism has gone along with the big bronze bell, which looks to have been cut off (the top remains, with the maker's name engraved). A lot of the woodwork is rotten, but it's possible to get out onto the top. Grafitti is also interesting!!

    I was talking to a security guard at the Freeport and he said he went to explore it years back and had to climb in because the door had been barracaded by a tramp who was living there. Apparently as he climbed up one side, the tramp climbed down a rope on the other side and did one! Quite unique though, hopefully eventually it'll be restored.
