The Dock was built in the 1860s as part of the industrial development of Middlesbrough. It enabled coal from the Durham Coalfield and Cleveland iron products to be loaded onto ships and transported around the country. The Dock Tower has three clock faces with a blank wall facing the works so the workers wouldn't know the time!
