Proving House

Built in 1875

Built in 1875, Proving House was designed for testing the strength of the chains that would tether the buoys made here at the river bed. It was then converted into individual workshops. Designed by Trinity House engineers and built by their construction team, it is a charming building we are preserving long term.
