Site Boards for St.Andrew's Dock
31st October 2017

Site Boards now completed ready to be installed on St. Andrew's Dock for early 2018

Sixteen huge display boards charting the history of Hull's former fish dock as well as plans for its future are set be installed there in the New Year.

St Andrew's Dock was once home to the world's largest deep-water fishing fleet. Now all that remains of those halcyon days are a couple of derelict buildings, the bullnose and the silted-up dock itself.

It's hoped the display boards will also help discourage further vandalism in the area. Over recent years both the former Lord Line trawler offices and the dock's Victorian pump house have suffered extensive damage by vandals.

Travellers have also pitched their vans on the dock on several occasions, causing more damage and litter problems.

The boards are the idea of Andrew Fenton, a Hull-based commercial designer who is working with landowner John Levison on long-term plans to re-develop the site.
