1865 - Taff Vale Railway - Plan of Cardiff and Penarth shewing Railways, Docks and Shipping Places. The route of the new road constructed by the Penarth Railway Co. (i.e. the Penarth Harbour, Dock, and Railway company, Ltd.) is clearly defined in red and marked 'new road' as it crosses the River Taff and on into the Bute Docks. Interestingly, 14 coal tips are indicated within the dock (plus two within the basin) whilst only 10 were initially installed and the dock was about 2,000 feet shorter than shown due to the overrun on construction time and cost. Over at the Ely Tidal Harbour 12 coal tips are indicated but only actually 10 built. Another heritage find at the Glamorgan Archives. [Glamorgan Archive Reference : D479] [599] [20190410]
