Went for a look around the Alfred Dock entrance area (with permission from the Harbour Master's Office). Found the Dock Masters Lodge, a WW2 pillbox and a Hydraulic tower. Most of this used to be accessible via a footpath but you are no longer allowed across the lock without permission.

Lovely brick and stone designs. Hope they get restored and somehow incorporated in any development, and not demolished!
