'Tom Pudding Hoist'
Jetty Wharf
Goole
East Riding

From Dutch River Side

From Albert Street
536953


A way of emptying the coal-carrying compartment 'tubs' that were towed behind a tug-boat, from their loading point (in this case; NewLands Basin, at Stanley Ferry (Aire & Calder Navigation Canal)

See here, for a couple of colour pictures, of 'T-P's' (possibly) loaded at the Staithes at Parkhill Pit (slightly to the south-west)
https://www.stanleyhistoryonline.com/Stanley-Ferry-Workshops.html
Also, scroll to the B&W photographs, for pictures of the 'T-P's' on the carriages, behind a saddle-tank locomotive, about to be reversed into the water to be floated off
(a long chain was used, so the loco could remain on level ground)

In Addition;
I'm slightly biased with this one, & was really hoping someone would have asked if I was interested in the hoist, as I grew up less than a mile from the NewLands Basin
Plus, for the past 15 years, I've ridden/driven/run over the adjacent road-bridge (& even ridden/run along the route of the railway) to get to work


Looking to where the engine is, I've no idea when NewLands Basin was filled in (but that B&W photo was taken off the same bridge)

Along the line of the NewLands Colliery line

At the Basin level, with the railway embankment (& my route) following the tree-line to the left

In my collection I have this book, it has a lot of 'T-P' related images

Out again, I believe on my next day-off (Sunday)
Senior Management, wants to go to Bawtry

She described the layout of the main-streets to me, & that's the only place I can think of (barring Bedale & Leyburn), but she did state it's a few years since we've been there

I'm happy, as it's on The Great North Road, & will allow me to fill in a few 'gaps', in my photos:okay:
(& start a new 'GNR' album)

Then just below it, by about 400yards, I turned round on Folly Nook Lane, opposite this sign
