Tom Pudding hoist No.5

Tom Pudding hoist No.5
The surviving compartment boat hoist at Goole Docks dozes in the late evening sun. These hoists were designed to load coal brought from Yorkshire collieries in floating trains of compartment boats into seagoing vessels. There was even a floating version of the hoist that could be towed to wherever in the docks it was required. This No.5 hoist is now preserved with a small museum attached.
