Skinningrove Jetty

0001648-1

A lovely photograph of the jetty with the sea splashing over it, I remember those railway tracks running down from the works and the crane ’Jumbo’ do you? Les Harker recalls: “I remember it well and dodging the waves as a apprentice fitter getting to the pumps at the end of the jetty without getting washed away. The Fitter was Albert Smith.

Thanks to Les Harker for that memory.

    I was shift foreman electrician the night the end of the jetty began to crack off.I called Mr W.H.TUBBS who was chief engineer. We isolated the 3.3 high tension supply to the pumps. for weeks after that the pumps were rigged jury fashion on a big raft in order to keep the Jetty pump house heat exchanger working.
