Warehouse Wednesday: A little slipway hut


A nice little brick-built hut. Interesting and quite modelable, but this Warehouse Wednesday is really about the surroundings. The hut is found on Ramsgate harbour, and unusual in-town location for something industrial.


Looking around, there is a wealth of fascinating detail. The hut obviously pre-dates the rest of the setup by many years. Nowadays it would be a portacabin or shipping container, but one, someone had the pride to erect an attractive and well-built structure.

Looking back along the slipway, it's still very much in use.

The catamaran was one of the fleet of vessels and having some welding carried out around the propshaft area, although I couldn't see exactly what was being repaired.

I suspect it might be housing some fixed equipment like a pump engine
