SCRCA Location Type: Crane

Location Type Code

Permenantly installed cranes or hoists were provided in most goods yards and goods sheds to facilitate the loading / unloading of heavy and bulky freight.

Unfortunately, none of these structures have survived in-situ within the SCRCA. However, the locations of at least some of the exterior cranes have been identified from the 1911-12 land plans and these have been added to the SCRCA Project database. The records do not appear below as we currently have no photographs featuring any of these structures. However, the skeleton location records can be reviewed via the Gazetteer by selecting 'Crane' in the 'Location Type' filter.


There are no sites / structures of this type with a default image.
Details of all the locations in the database can be viewed via the Gazetteer.
