Photographs of Gloucester Docks

This series of photographs show some of the many facets of Gloucester Docks.

The port of Gloucester was of great historical importance. The Romans built a fort which was used for the transport of men and supplies between the Midlands and Wales. In 1580 Gloucester was granted the status of port by Queen Elizabeth 1. In 1794 a canal was constructed to Berkeley which opened up a link with the Stroud water and Thames canals so providing a direct route to the Midlands and London.

In its heyday the port of Gloucester was a major center for the shipment of timber, corn, metals, wines and spirits and the elegant tall ships pictured in our photographs were a familiar sight. Today many of the historic warehouses have been converted and the docks with their museums, pubs and café's provide a major attraction for tourists.
