Portishead Dock JEH_22046_048
Portishead Dock, North Somerset. In 1860 a deep water dock was built to accomodate large ships that had difficulty reaching Bristol Harbour. With the closure of the adjacent power stations in 1982 the dock lost its primary purpose and was closed in 1992. It has since been redeveloped as a marina. Photographed here in November 1970 by Jim Hancock.
