1872 - A plan of 'Penarth Dock and Approaches'

1872 - A plan of 'Penarth Dock and Approaches' clearly confirming the route of the company road from Penarth Dock to the Bute Docks, Pier Head and beyond. The route commenced with the 'Steam Ferry' crossing of the River Ely and then followed the coastline northwards until it diverted to the 'Jetty' at the 'Public Wharf' on the inner meanderings of the River Ely. The roadway then proceeded parallel with the Tidal Harbour Railway indicated 'Penarth Railway' until it came to the ironworks where it crossed under the railway and passed westwards through York Place and Ferry Road to the company swing bridge across the River Taff. Passing the Hamadryad Hospital Ship the roadway passed over the swing bridge nearby the entrance to the Glamorganshire Canal and finally entered Butetown.

The plan formed part of a publication named 'The Port Charges of Great Britain and Ireland . . .' which was published in 1872. [872] [499] [20200426]
