The Deep

A geometric façade

The Deep is a public aquarium situated at Sammy’s Point, at the confluence of the River Hull and the Humber estuary in Hull, England. It opened in March 2002. Billed as “the world’s only submarium”, the tanks contain thousands of sea creatures (including seven species of shark), 2,500,000 litres (550,000 imp gal; 660,000 US gal) of water and 87 tonnes (96 tons) of salt housed in a building designed by Sir Terry Farrell and built (by Mero-Schmidlin) as part of the UK National Lottery’s Millennium Commission project at a cost of £52.285 million for the initial construction. It is supposed to look like a big boat, or half-of-one at least, looming… or possibly even sinking.

Cowl Vent

Upside down and with a grill

A cowl is a covering used to increase the draft of a chimney and prevent backflow. In strong winds the pressure of the wind may overwhelm the updraft and push the airflow in reverse down the flue. Smoke will then fill the room it is intended to heat posing a health and fire risk, causing discomfort and dirtying furnishings in its path, and we don’t want that.

Shopfront

Urban regeneration

A derelict and boarded-up shopfront on Hawthorne Avenue (Chalk Lane) with broken windows in good light just before the drizzle came. Hawthorn Avenue is an old alignment, known originally as Chalk Lane which provided a link from the hamlet of Dairycoates (Hessle Road) to the Anlaby Road. In 1875 a ‘Hotel’ was built for Mr Parrott.

Willerby Low Road

Album sleeve number 23

There isn’t a corresponding ‘High Road’ so we can’t sing the song, but there is a ‘Great Gutter Lane’ nearby which is also a great name, alas the actual lane is visually as dull as ditch water. ‘Willerby Low Road’ runs between Willerby and Cottingham…. And, as of typing, Willerby has apparently been a community for 1100 years.

The Wall

Three ex-holes

But what were the holes for, what did they used to be, were they (small) windows, or ventilation conduits, or something I am currently unable to imagine? And why paint them over in such a bright colour, and why not make the rest of the wall match, are they going to leave it like that forever in the hope that somehow they will get dirtier faster than the surrounding wall, or do they just not care? I obviously need to stop obsessing over such matters, it is not my concern and I will only make myself ill.
