Does anyone know what happend to the Store quadrangle clock tower after the Stores were demolished? I have a vague notion of seeing the top of it apparently sat beside the dockyard wall as one went through Bluetown sometime in the 80s.

My God.. It is only when you see places like this from the air do you realise how much history has been lost. Such a shame and you still cannot go in there to have a look around.

In the first aerial photo there is only two of the three basins are not filled in the small Basin looks like it has already been filled so the photo it is probably taken in 1977.

Hope this is of some use

The worst incident probably being during the great Storm on the 16th of October 1987.
During the storm 3 enormous 150ft dock cranes were blown off the No 1 berth into the Olau berth.
Divers had to be sent down to locate the cranes and salvage operations took 3 days.

This fits in with the 1967 Aerial picture:



Found it on Page 20 of the Financial Times March 31 1967.

The basins were infilled in 1977, the same year the storehouse was pulled down.
