brings back some memories Dave, I used to go there when I was in the Munro coasting colliers in the late forties, Trouble was we didn't get much time ashore as we had to keep shifting ship under the chutes, when loading, cor they were hard times but I wouldn't change them even though we went one stretch without a night in port for six months running from there to Liverpool Clarence dock power station, this is true nostalgia.Tell
