À propos de

Grimsby Dock Tower is a hydraulic accumulator tower and a maritime landmark at the entrance to the Royal Dock, Grimsby, in North East Lincolnshire, England. It was completed on 27 March 1852, based on William Armstrong's idea of the hydraulic accumulator, with the purpose of containing a 30,000-imperial-gallon (140,000 L) reservoir at a height of 200 feet (61 m), that was used to provide hydraulic power to power the machinery of the Grimsby Docks. The extreme height of the tower was necessary to achieve sufficient pressure, and as a result of this, the tower can be seen for several miles around, even far inland on the north bank of the River Humber and is a great reference for VFR flight.

This scenery also includes the smaller weighted accumulator tower.

There will be more updates to include modelling of the surrounding dock area if the requirement arises :)

This works very nicely with our other scenery in the region which are available here:
Spurn Point Landmarks
EGNJ Humberside Airport
EGNY Linley Hill Airfield

fantastic, it kinda bugged me that the dock tower wasnt there

Great improvement, thanks Chris 😊
Once again Excellent Chris, Please can you tidy up lindsey Oil Refinery if possible? as you know its a major Landmark Chimneys there and south ferriby cemex works near reeds island. Plus Humberside Terminal somebody ! .. No idea what they've done to that. Enjoy the Coffee Chris and many thanks for your great work buddy!
Haydn.
Yes POI would be great any chance you could maybe put some silos and cranes around Immingham docks as that's where I have worked in the past and also the approach into Humberside takes you over the docks. Thank you so much for creating stuff round here I thought it would be ages before we got anything, I was surprised to see the Humber Bridge in the last update to be fair 😀
Hi Chris, it's really great to see local landmarks being posted, pity Titans chimney was demolished, it was a great landmark/guidance piece also.
May I ask if EGNJ might be in the pipeline, it's not far from the bridge...
Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all the comments and support. Just a quick question:

Do you want the Tower to have a POI marker?

I don't like them myself so I've been avoiding adding too many in the same location, but I'm not you.

Fly safe!
My hometown 😊 what a legend, thanks mate
Excellent, thank you.
Hi Chris,

this is great, it really stands out and is ideal for vfr flying in the area.

Do you fancy having ago at Cleethorpes pier and the Belmont tv transmitter?
Boy that was quick after my request for it, many thanks Chris

PS needs a red light at night 😊
Great work, have you any plans on doing Cleethorpes pier?
This is very nice work. I look forward to your development of this interesting scenery. It's always nice to have a story to go with it so thank you for that. As a New Zealander I had no idea what this was. 😊
