News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Another great plan Kyn. It does raise some questions though. What is the Boundary fence running roughly east to west across St Mary's Island? It shows the Boat Basin as being work 'in progress'; was it actually built? Then the dotted lines on St Mary's Island, what do they signify? Questions, questions!

I presume the boat basin work was superceded by the construction of No.9 Dock which began in 1901/2
