In 1985 Esso made Avonmouth its main distribution centre for South Wales and much of the south-west and on 5th August,
1985, the Esso Caernarvon made the last delivery to the Esso Wharf, in the Ely River adjacent to Penarth Dock in South Wales.
The wharf, the last trading berth on the Ely River, was officially closed on 14th September, 1985.
