Manchester docklands is a great example Alex and the general idea these days seems to be retain the water feature and build around it. the fact #3 dock was once the U.K's largest will no doubt play a part in its survival.

Oh, I'm not averse to something being done on the site, but as yous say - retaining some of the (still quite impressive) architecture and preserving some memory of its history.
I'm just not convinced that that's going to happen. I'd love to be proven wrong, though.

Technically, Manchester doesn't have docklands, I think you mean Salford Quays. A better example of sympathetic restoration would be Liverpool Albert Docks.

Hi, I am wondering if I need any permission to visit Govan Graving Docks since it is privately owned. Last week I passed by, I saw it is fenced off, I am worrying if I just climb over the fence, would that create any problems?

Turn into Stag St off Govan Rd and enter through the big gaping hole in the fence at the bottom ... no harm no foul.
