Port on the river Ouse, N. Yorkshire, UK. Built largely ex nihilo in the 19th century as a model town of the era on former marshlands reclaimed in the 17th century by Dutch engineer Cornelius Vermuyden, to serve the new docks, of which the first was opened in 1826, built at the mouth of Vermuyden's "Dutch River" as an international outlet for inland waterway traffic on the Aire and Calder canal; it was later connected by rail. The port serves coasters and ships mainly crossing from the Netherlands, Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic, allowing access to larger vessels than those which had used the earlier port upstream at Selby, which suffered from the silting up of the river and difficult access because of tidal conditions. Much of its traffic was in coal from the West Yorkshire coalfields. Despite the collapse of the coal trade, the harbour is still reasonably busy, as shown by the list of shipping movements on http://www.zdf66.ukgateway.net/goole.htm.

Or, in the hardlink that originally inspired this brief writeup, a typo for "Google", I suppose. Various stuff found out via http://www.goole.com
