    Yeah, they had a wood causeway there up to about 1901. If Mc Dowell gets his way, they'll be building another one to the prison at Spike.

    It hasn't changed dramatically since McCarthys photos, they are cleaning up the remains of the last building to fall to prepare space for the final large section.

    Had a look already was just wondering if they had knocked the last section yet. Been away for the past couple of weeks so i was surprised to see how much they had done to the Steel.

    Thanks for that Goldie F.

    No. A groyne is a protective structure. This was a wooden causeway, more like a bridge. The water flowed under it.

    Noun 1. groyne - a protective structure of stone or concrete; extends from shore into the water to prevent a beach from washing away
    breakwater, jetty, seawall, groin, bulwark, mole
    barrier - a structure or object that impedes free movement

    one more...

    I don't see the remaining building lasting beyond the end of the month. After that, the ground level cleanup can begin.

    Who owns it? What is it used for? Have you a point to make?

    yes, you insist the NS own the west wall. They don't, there are marine transport vessels tied up alongside it and the michael martin seems to think there will be a marina there. the navy should have the west wall but the fact is it is too valuable an asset to be given away by a government that puts no value in being able to execise its jurisdiction over its sea area.

    Anyhoo...

    The Dockside cranes are gone, cut to pieces on the ground, along with the solitary steel chimney that was near the Basin.

    Remaining structure due to fall Midweek.

    It appears unchanged the last time I was down. The main work is being done clearing the fall zone of all debris.
    When it does come down there will be photos. End of the month according to security.

    Thanks for your interest.

    Not at all. It's really interesting, personally I hope the site goes to the Navy.

    The treaty ports have always held some bizarre fascination for me.
    Meh.
