|Description: The St Katharine Docks had handled very little shipping since they had sustained heavy damage during the Blitz of the Second World War. The docks closed in 1969, and have now been redeveloped for leisure and residential use. One of these warehouses has been retained, but Telford's warehouses were demolished in 1977-78 to make way for an office block.|
