Interesting how the allotments (vegetable gardens) stand at the centre of this industrial scene. Not only did people live close to their work, companies often provided space for such activities.

Both wide and narrow barges and wide and narrow locks to suit. The larger barges would have changed the nature of canal operations if they had been more widely used across the UK in the way larger barges are still widely (sorry about the pun) used across Europe.

I feel this looks more like a grain silo than a warehouse. Importing ships would discharge into the silo at the canal end and flour carried to the mill by a covered conveyor at the inland end.

Just for the record the map evidence is as follows:

the 1911 1:2500 OS describes this building as Goods Shed.

The 1957 1:2500 OS describes the building on the same footprint as Warehouse.

The 1929 1:10560 also calls the building a Goods Shed.

For all that I can see your explanation Maurice which makes sense.

Grain warehouse or grain silo - What's in a name? While the OS were normally very good at getting things right, perhaps they slipped here. Alternatively it may be that I am using a modernism with the use of the word silo.... when did it come into usage here? Silo via Latin from Greek 'siros' - cornpit. I suspect modern usage has origins in the USA.

See EPW036418 Here we have a grain silo in 1931! Clearly the word was around.
