25 Being a Tidal Dock, the gates can be all thrown open at high water from Sea to Dock for the ingress or egress of Shipping, thereby avoiding the great delay usually caused at other Docks by locking through.

There are fourteen coal tips in the Dock, and two in the basin for steamers of the largest dimensions. All the fourteen tips are on the high level; each is capable of shipping 150 tons per hour. The tips appropriated to large steamers are capable of shipping 300 tons per hour. Every provision has been made for shipping coal with the least possible breakage, with the greatest despatch, and at the minimum charge. There are sufficient cranes worked by hydraulic power for the discharge of ballast, iron ore, &c.; the same power is applied to the opening and closing, of the dock gates, and for other purposes applicable to affording convenience and facilities in working the Dock, also in discharging, loading, and despatching vessels.

In addition to these considerations, it may be stated that from the depth of water in this Dock it is able to accommodate the largest class of ships. PENARTH TIDAL HARBOUR.
