This post follows on from the boats at Barrow Haven & into the small dockyard there. The port is used mainly for the importation & storage of timber and steel shuttering.
As it was a Sunday there was no activity in the dockyard so we were able to get a few pictures, I took mainly pattern/texture pictures.
The timber yard at Barrow Haven Dockyard.
Pallets of timber everywhere, these were all slender, staves with pointed ends.
I couldn't work out what they might be used for.
|As can be seen here, the timber came from distant places.|
|As I like to take pattern & texture pictures I found these staves interesting.|
Between two pallets is a view of Barrow Haven and the Humber Estuary in the
distance with the Humber Bridge spanning it from Barton Upon Humber across to
Hessle on the Yorkshire side.
A stand of steel shuttering, the sort you might see holding up deep road excavations
or similarly along the banks of a canal.
|Flat steel sheeting, I liked the shapes, lines & rust.|

We travelled on, along the route of the Barton to Cleethorpes

Here the railway line enters New Holland Dock and Bulk Terminal area.
Even on a weekday there's no public access beyond here.
|The Humber Bulk terminal.....no access to us!|
Bulk cargo vessels moor up to the jetty to unload their cargoes, mainly grain.
This long jetty was originally used by Steam Paddle ships operating a ferry service over
the Humber Estuary after the previous service stopped from the nearby Barrow Haven.
On 24th July 1981, the Humber Bridge was opened to the public. It was officially opened
by HM Queen Elizabeth II on 17th July 1981.
The ferry service from here ceased shortly after that.
