SS5533SE CASTLE QUAY 684-1/7/81 with 12 bollards, from and including 31/08/88 steps, to slipway at Civic Centre end


Quay fronting River Taw. Probably late C19. Stone rubble with kerb of squared granite blocks secured by iron ties; some blocks have been replaced in concrete, mainly opposite the old Town Station where the sand dredgers unload. At SE end a flight of granite steps leads down to the water. Surface of quay at NW end asphalted; SE end tiled in 1986. 12 cast-iron bollards, spaced out along whole length of quay, all but the 9th from the SE with shaped tops; 6 of the bollards have the numbers 1, 7, 2, 5, 4, and 6 moulded on the top (in that order). The warehouses that formerly lined the quay on the far side of Commercial Road have mostly disappeared, but a range of former bonded warehouses at the SE end are listed as part of Queen Anne's Court in Castle Street (qv).
