William Daniell wrote, ‘This noble bason (sic. basin) was executed from the design & at the individual expence of John Perry Esq.r & was chiefly intended for the accomodation & protection of the ships of the Hon.ble East India Company. The whole excavation which contains about eight acres, is divided into two parts...one of which is capable of receiving thirty of the largest East India ships and the other an equal number of smaller vessels. This great & useful work was begun on the 2nd of Mach 1789 & the Dock was opened for the reception of shipping on the 20th Nov.r 1790.’
