.............Docks of that age seem to be only about 20 ft. depth of water . Seaforth dock is 50 ft. deep but that was built for much larger ships than the coal trade which used BM dock.

The depth of the dock ranges from 100ft to 1500ft as this pic shows
It's the roll I way

Without wishing to cause an argument , 100 ft to 1500 ft refers to the scale of the plan ,it doesn't say that's the depth .
From what I can discover Huskisson dock has a depth of 27 ft of water and Sandon has 25 ft. I guess BM has a similar figure . The depth could be increased by drawing water from the river and I assume this was one of the uses of the hydraulic tower. These depths only refer to the water and there might be 10 to 15 ft above the water to get the total depth of a dock.
Not sure why we're having this conversation but it is interesting ( to me at least )

1500ft deep hole would be crazy deep. Eiffel Tower is just under 1000 feet tall.

I'm just wondering, if it was 1500 foot deep, 457 metres, that’s 270 feet short of a mile in depth. I would think the project would be a nonstarter for landfill. I'm just trying to gauge the size of the task ahead and if at all it would be feasible as we'd all be getting excited over nothing. Obviously it's not that deep. It wouldn't be getting discussed even at this early stage. Not unless there was some way to bridge the pitch and build the stadium straddling the dock walls. I'm just looking at options. If it's all approved, in the long run it's going to be interesting to see the process. Any Marine engineers out there?

Come to think of it, if it's about 30 feet, why fill it? Put in a cantilever and use the space for thing like exec parking and maintenance facilities.

I have no knowledge art all about this but there's no way it's 1500 foot deep!

Obviously not. I'm fairly sure we're talking in depths of 50 -100 feet and under. I'm not sure of the draught of the boats that used it. I was hoping someone would come up with some of the dock specifications regarding depth. There's nothing I can find that gives any real indication of landfill volume.  :)

This is my first post (I think) in 51 years of supporting the Toffees. It has just taken some 35 minutes to read the last 10 or so posts in this thread, due to crying with laughter!

Most harbours are only around 60feet deep so doubt a dock would be any deeper. Doesn't really matter though as building a plinth over it should be what we do anyway and use the water underneath as a way for mosh to sneak in on his yacht
