Deepol / Dennis

Thanks for posting the pictures. Lots of great memories there. :clap: :clap:

Love the pictures from Rothesay Dock in the other threads. I was born and brought up not far from there but it was towards the end of the 70s before I was a regular visitor. I don't remember the sheds on the west quay. What were they ?

Hi Craig,
Being neither a local nor a frequent visitor my knowledge of activities in Rothesay Dock is very limited, but I can recall some form of bulk handling and a sometimes dusty environment. Paul's local knowledge is likely to be more useful!

The sheds on the West Quay at Rothesay Dock belonged to Tunnel Cement and the cement clinker was unloaded there as here by Everard's SERENITY in 1973. A fun place on a windy day!!

Paul/Dennis

Thanks again for the pictures and the info about Rothesay Dock. I'm now starting to think that I might remember the sheds - but then again......

Keep the pictures coming. Unfortunately I wasn't taking many pictures back then so can't really offer much in return. But I do have lots of memories of heading down to Beardmores after school in the hope that I might see something moving.
