Goole Dock

Stopped at Goole on my way to Scunny. Called in at the Waterways Museum. Their theme was Goole’s canal basin and featured the Aire/Calder navigation. Coal was once brought down from South Yorkshire in tugs, called ‘Tom Puddings’. I sought out the Ouse Dock, at the end of Aire Street. In the dock was a sea going vessel flying the Russian flag, the Mekhanik Tyulenev, offloading a consignment of timber, probably from the Baltic States. Who says nothing ever happens in Goole? Goole comedian Ian Smith wouldn’t agree. Catch his series of 8 minute videos on the culture and history of Goole (and discover more about Tom Puddings…).
