    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) -

    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

    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
