Footnotes

  • The new dock was designed for the Sharpness Canal – whereby sea-going vessels had access to Gloucester, avoiding the River Severn at the point where tides interrupted naviagion. This connected with Brunel's broad gauge railway network: the plan shows the route of the proposed railway running parallel to the proposed new dock in South Hamlet and abutting at right angles the existing canal.
