A very bad copy of a water colour painting thats out there somewhere. You can just see some figures on the Fisher Bridge if you squint real hard.

NORTH END FAMILY GET-TOGETHER

Ted,
As far as I know, I have no links to the North End or the Bennefers.
One of my distant relatives did, however, send me a copy of this picture, which was simply labelled "North End, King's Lynn"
Perhaps you or one of the other might be able to recognise exactly where it was?

Thanks LOB

The Retreat is just peeping in on the right. It is the Fisher Fleet. There are some very similar views on here.
Fantastic picture.

Thanks.

Teddy

Hi there,

Just come across these pictures and found them very interesting, after investigating this area as part of a University project. Before the
construction of the two docks, does anybody have any idea what lie either side of the fishers fleet, on the land that the dock were built upon? Was it just marshland, that flooded on high tide?

The dock was built in the old river bed. old-git posted a map showing the
original river course and as it is now.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

To save any confusion, not the Littleport in Cambridgeshire. Small boats used to unload up stream towards Highgate, this area was known as the Little Port, hence the name Littleport Street.

And it was known as the "Leccy" only where it ran past the "leccy Works" :D

I agree the previous photos must be Fisher Bridge Terrace but does anyone know where Bank Road was? My 3rd Great Grandfather Edward Pemment was living in Bank Road in the the 1861 census. It seems to have been between North End Yard and Fisher Bridge Terrace...?
