Between 10 and 100 boats call there daily, most of which need services like the post office, banks, grocers, doctors, etc.

Thorn Marine is able to direct them to those services in the village.

Thorn Marine supply many unique items not available anywhere else in the town, including repair facilities for boats.

They would use the Packet Steps, which can still be seen today [left], leading down to the canal to board the Duchess Countess to Manchester and Runcorn; the now A49 was then (and still is today) a major route from London.

There is also mention of horse changes being made at Stockton Quay.

Both Thorn Marine and the adjacent property (currently Jeffreys tyres old site), appear to have been used as stables for this purpose.

It is mentioned in the Tithe document as a stable, and it is later in life to be called Bridge Stables, and also has been used as a Bank Riders Cottage.

It would therefore make sense that the building is part of the Stockton Quay area, and was as vital as the wharf or the steps outside the London Bridge pub.
