Royal Dock continues as a cargo dock and lots of new cars are landed at the victoria dock. The river is always very busy as well with traffic for Hull, Immingham, Gole and all the other little ports.
It sounds so much better than it does in the song about
"The Dosshouse in East Grimsby Docks"

The beds they all creak
And the pi##pots all leak
And the sheets, they are never too clean!
There's a hole in the floor
For the Lame and the poor
And for women a s####### machine.

Love the price of the beer!
