Grimsby Haven Lock and Dock Wall 58 metres Long adjoining to West, Lock Hill - North East Lincolnshire (UA)

Lock basin and quayside wall by John Rennie, built 1798/1799. This lock separated the tidal haven from the Humber estuary, creating the first dock at Grimsby. Vaulted dock walls were employed here; an innovative form of dock construction later replicated at Hull and Grimsby on a much larger scale. The lock and dock walls are now partly covered by spoil. Localised collapse, open joints, missing and broken bollards and railings signal the neglect suffered by this historic structure.
