Visited with a member of another forum, good to meet you mate

The marine workshops were built by the local railway company (LB&SCR) in 1882 to service the Newhaven-Dieppe ferries (LB&SCR owned the port at the time). The building to the south was later converted to be the power station for the whole port.
The listed buildings have been disused for at least 20years and are now part of the east quay regeneration plan.

Great place to explore, found a strange mix of railway and nautical stuff inside. Although its quite trashed i really enjoyed this visit.
Cheers to Monk for the info

the highlight of the visit was the huge gantry cranes, totally manually operated, and still working! I managed to move them on my own!

Meeching was Newhaven’s own tug boat, and was the only one to be owned by BR( I believe the tug is now sat somewhere in the Thames estuary waiting for a decision on its future)

old port logbooks, the last entry was the 28th of May 1944, just before D-day, a lot of the entries are MTBs
