History
Opened in 1949, the Lord Line trawler company offices once served as the home of the world's largest deep-water fishing fleet. The site, which is situated toward the undeveloped eastern end of St Andrew's Dock, was closed in 1975 and has remained derelict ever since. Planning applications were put forward by previous owners Junction with a view of demolishing the site in 1997 and 1999, although public opinion against the work was so great that this caused the company to reconsider the proposal and look at restoring the existing building instead. Due to the history of the building and its association with the fishing industry, many groups have called for its complete restoration in memory of the trawlers that operated from the building. In December 2014, a petition was launched campaigning for the Hull City Council to takeover the site and convert it into a museum on the fishing industry, in memory of over 6,000 trawlermen that died from the city. In June 2015, a Hull property developer argued that the building should be restored to become a part of the city's heritage. Later that same month, fishing heritage campaigners also expressed concern over the impending demolition of the building. Others however have suggested that the building be demolished as quickly as possible, due to its potential to be vandalised again and the length of time that the building has been derelict. In July 2015, fishing heritage campaigners had expressed concerns after it was revealed that a building connected to the Lord Line was to be demolished. In August 2015, company director Philip Akrill unveiled six bronze plaques at the site, in tribute to those that had died during fishing disasters. The plaques had been partly funded by the company. In July 2017, a Change.org petition to keep the Lord Line building from being demolished had passed a thousand signatures.

The explore

Fairly tame and nothing too wild, alot of really cool graffiti but the place is essentially just a shell. Went with my usual exploring partner my dad :)
