The first Harbour Master's House
Harbour Master's House.
We all know the Harbour Master's House on Ballast Quay - it was part of a complicated network set up to try and regulate the huge numbers of coal ships from the north in the river in the 19th century.
It was a rebuild of an older Harbour Master's Office which was at 'Highbridge Place'. I found a web site which says it became the Three Crowns Pub, which was alongside the Highbridge draw dock.
Does anyone know anything about this and if it is true??
