Photo-a-day 148: Accumulator tower

close

Warning: This post was published more than 5 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Wendy and I went to enjoy the lovely weather down at the marina at North Shields today, which I also visited last month. This photo shows the original accumulator tower which used to power the lock. It’s pretty much the only visible artefact of the original Albert Edward Dock.

The lock itself remains in fine fettle thanks to regular maintenance, and was indeed operating today:
