1934 : Plan & Sections - G.W.R. Penarth Harbour - No. 3 Coal Tip. - A front and side elevation of No.3 coal tip of the Ely Tidal Harbour the location of which is indicated on the plan. The drawing originates at the G.W.R. Divisional Docks Engineer's Office at Barry Docks and is dated 26th April 1934.

Elsewhere on the drawing are the results of survey soundings and resultant cross-sectional views of the river Ely mud adjacent to the tip. The purpose of the drawing is not clear since No.3 tip had been rebuilt in 1904 and No.4 tip in 1925. Maybe it had silted up and required localised dredging to meet G.W.R. requirements.

The original plan is held at the archive of the National Museum of Wales. [Museum item number : 88.81I/16] [629] [20180521]
