Richmond Dock, Northam - Torridge

Dry dock, 1856. It is said to have been the largest dry dock in the Bristol Channel at the time it was built. The dock is now vacant. In 2015 the gates were in poor condition, and no repair proposals have been made to Historic England. Ongoing discussions for alternative uses and greater regeneration proposals are being held with the Local Planning Authority, as of May 2019.
