Hull Bullnose Heritage Group, The Goodwin Development Trust and Hull City Council have worked together to produce two murals to commemorate and celebrate Hessle Road, the fishing industry and allied trades.
Hull landed more fish in the St Andrews fish dock than any other port in the UK and, at one point, the world (a skipper told us that so it must be true!). The industry supported and employed more than 10,000 men and women in the city and, until recently, this has gone unnoticed or been forgotten.
The murals are a lasting tribute to all men, women and their families who worked in all areas of the fishing trade.
The project began on 6 May and the unveiling of the murals took place on Saturday 20 May. The murals can be seen at:
– Turbo Systems, at the corner of Gillet Street and Hessle Road, HU3 4JA.
– Halfway Pub, opposite Asda on Hessle Road, HU3 5AA.
– Photoworks, 11am, at the Rawlings Way end of Hessle Road, HU3 2AF. This mural has been funded independently of Hull 2017.
If you have purchased a ticket for an event/activity at this venue through hull2017.co.uk, please do not contact the venue direct with enquiries for that purchase as they will be unable to help.
