GV II

Quay walls and bollards. 1803-1809. By William Jessop. Altered 1867-73. Granite and Pennant with limestone ashlar and cast-iron. Dressed quay kerbs and Pennant quay walls, with mooring bollards, to sides of the Cumberland basin, North Entrance and North Junction Locks. HISTORICAL NOTE: Cumberland Basin and South Junction Lock (qv) form part of Jessop's 1804 W entrance to his floating harbour, with the South Junction Lock (qv), and Brunel's South Entrance Lock (qv). The North Entrance Lock and North Junction Lock were built by the Docks Engineer Thomas Howard in 1867-73. The Floating Harbour provided a large non-tidal area in the Port of Bristol for the first time, a long-planned and much-delayed development. Though incapable of counterbalancing the port's inadequacies relative to its rivals such as Liverpool and London, it had a profound effect on the commercial and industrial history and geography of the city, and thereby its architecture. (Lord J and Southam J: The Floating Harbour: Bristol: 1983-: 33).
