Lowther Hotel, Aire Street, Goole, East Riding of Yorkshire
A rare chance to tour Goole Docks with an expert.
A walking tour of Goole Docks and its unique and innovative way of shipping coal. The starting tour will be the Lowther Hotel again and we will move off across the docks towards the No.5 Coal Hoist. If access can be arranged there will be an opportunity at the end of the tour to visit South Dock and No.5 Coal Hoist. Hosted by Goole Civic Society. The coal hoists, 'Tom Puddings' were clever inventions to speed up the transfer of coal from barges to steamers
