DL says: The "High Level" bridge in this picture separates Devonshire Dock (to the left on this picture) from Buccleugh Dock. It follows the line of the original crossing between Barrow village and Barrow Island which was used before Barrow Channel was enclosed in the 1860s to form these two docks.
Cavendish Dock is the large totally enclosed area that has been used as a source of cooling water for Roosecote Power Station since the 1950s. It was built but never used for ships, although there was a large airship shed (the foundations are still visible above the water) where Naval Airship No1 - popularly known as the "Mayfly" -it may fly or not - was built.
