    So, with a giddy step in my stride prob caused by the Brand new panasonic Lumix LX3 in my pocket, i decided to take a mince down the dockside in Hull.

    Now, Hull was once the busiest port in europe, however, like many areas of heavy industy in Hull, it has seen better days.
    As a result of this it is a graveyard of pre-war splendor.
    Now these sites have been explored many times before, however, an update is never a bad thing.

    So first thing i did was park up at Princes dock to take a walk to the old goods sheds, which have unfortunately seen better days and are no longer accessable via the rails (due to a mixture of the "liquid anxiety" known as excess coffee and fear) -

    The entrance points have seen better days

    Ok, so after the failure that was the goods shed i took a walk over to the Lordline building further up the humber, on the way of course, passing one of Hull's most striking recent landmarks, The Deep

    Anyhoo, i finally reached the globe engineering building, a great industrial/art deco place, origionally built in 1932

    Anyway, the rest was pretty much the same, however, the sound of broken glass underfoot made me get that awful feeling that i wasnt alone, so i didnt spend that much time in there, these being the pick of the pics
