Full Description

Wharves, c 1800. Extensive walls, originally the remains of grounds probably belonging to Messrs R and N Furley Bros and Cross, ship builders. Also the remains (now falling into the water) of wharves (wooden piling and brick retaining walls). The whole site shown on OS 1in as "moat", called "Dog Island" (see M5031). (undated). (1)
At a little distance from the Trent Port Inn ... is Trent Port Wharf. The premises are every way suited for a genteel residence as well as for the reception of ship's cargoes. The dwelling-house is singularly ornamented and the gardens are laid out with some taste (NB may refer to M5045). (2)
See M5031 for moat, M5045 for nearby wharves.
