50° 54' N ; long. 1° 24' W. Pop. 109,000. Auth. The Southampton Harbour Board. The Southampton Docks, 78 miles from London, owned and managed by the London and South Western Railway Company, are situated within a per fectly sheltered harbour (one of the best lighted in the kingdom, making the docks as accessible by night as by day), and have the unusual natural advantage of double tides, with practically four hours of HW. every tide, thus affording unrivalled acconimodation for the largest steamers afloat, or now being built. The first high-water at the full and change of the moon is at roh zom, the second high-water at 12h 45m, and low water at 4h. To ships using the graving docks this double tide is very advantageous, as the water remains nearly stationary for a considerable time; thus, with: out risk, allowing vessels to come out of the dock, and others to enter, without losing a tide. The Empress Dock (18) acres) has an entrance 165 ft wide, with a minimum depth of 26 lt at LW., and it is the only dock in Great Britain where deep water loading and discharging berths can be reach ed by the largest vessels at any time of the day or night, irrespective of the state of the tide. There is also an Outer Dock of 16 acres and an Inner Dock of 10 acres. The quays at present complete equal 15,000 lineal feet. The New Quay Extensions in the Rivers Itchen and Test are now completed. The Prince of Wales Quay, 2,000ft long, the South Quay, 43oft, and the Test Quay, 1,500ft long, are all accessible at any time of the day or night, entirely irrespective of the state of the tide. The new Itchen (or Prince of Wales) Quay has for some time been extensively used for the arrivals and departures of the “Union," "Castle,” and “North German Lloyd and other liners, and the company have here erected double-stried sheds of the most modern designs. There is a minimum depth of 28ft at LW. of OST, at Prince of Wales and South quay, and of 32ft LWOST at Test Quay. The new graving dock was completed and opened on the 3rd of August, 1895, by H.R.H. The Prince of Wales, and named by him “ The Prince of Wales Dock." This is the deepest single graving dock in the world, being 75oft long by 874ft wide at sill and 1121t at cope level, and it is possible to lengthen it to 1,000 st, should the size of vessels ever demand it in the future. Besides this, there are four other large dry docks varying in length from 28oft to 52oft, and a dry dock, nearly finished, 86ost long, same breadth as Prince of Wales dry dock, but deeper. There are in the various docks spacious transit sheds for the reception of import and export cargoes; and bonded and free warehouses for the storage of every descriptirn of merchandise, including tobacco, cigars, &c. ; also commodious vaults and stores for the housing of wines and spirits under bond, with every facility for bottling. There are no finer nor drier vaults in the kingdom. There are 200,000 square ft of specially constructed shedding for wood goods. Special facilities have been provided for the grain trade, there being several large warehouses (capacity 2,300,000 bushels), fitted with the most modern machinery, capable of dealing with 200 tons of grain per hour, either from ship, lighter, or railway truck. Spacious Coal Barge Docks have been constructed on the Itchen, for the purpose of storing coal in lighters for the bunkering cf outgoing line steamers. These docks are capable of floating 14,000 tons of bunker coal at one time. Two coal jetties with four hydraulic or steam transporters. Foreign animals' wharves, abattoirs, &c. The position of Southampton as
a point for the importation and distribution of all kinds of foreign and colonial produce, and for the ocean steam trade generally, is unequalled, and every accommodation is offered 10 shipowners or companies organising steamship lines having Scuth. ampton for their point of arrival and departure. There is a complete system of hydraulic and electric power (sheers, cranes, hoisis, elevators, capstans, &c., &c.), with lifting power varying from one to twenty tons; and also steam sheers to lift up to eighty tons; the whole of the dock quays, sheds, and approaches are lighted by electricity; and a channel from the sea to the docks has been dredged to a depih of 30 st at LW. Railways of some 25 miles extend to all the quays and into and alongside each warehouse, and railway trucks pass direct to every railway in the kingdom. Special trains from and to Waterloo station (London) run directly to and from alongside the mail or passenger steamers, on days of arrival and departure, the journey occupying about an hour and three quarters, passengers thus saving the inconvecience and exposure of transfer by cabs and tenders.
There are also the Town Quays, which are the property of the Southampton Harbour Board. The Town Quays have a frontage of 4,500ft, are lit with the electric light, and powerful and fast-working electric cranes are provided for discharging cargoes. Berths of 6ooft in length, and ample warehouse accommodation, with most of water at LWOST. The quayage space is 260,00oft super, and there is also a pier, the largest on the South Coast, which was inaugurated by H.R.H. the Duke of Connaught, on June 2, 1892. P. C.
