Below:: This plan shows the eastern docks in 1827. The canal has been extended into two arms with wharf space and a central dock. Dry at this point, but designed so that the central reservoir could be flooded and water dammed in by a set of stop gates. The layout was a model of practicality compared with the public quays at Swansea at this time.
