Ipswich Wet Dock – Land Use Change

2018-01-02-24small

This was Ipswich Wet Dock in March 1994. I was teaching geography at that time and used to organise field trips for students to study the land use of the area based on them creating plans for how it could be redeveloped. It was still a working dock back then though change was evident as old industries closed and new uses emerged.

This is from January 2018. A total transformation! But it’s interesting to see how some of the old building shapes have been retained in the current designs.
