Apartment in dockside conversion proves ideal
Retired couple Barbara and Dennis Balfour have bought a flat at a new dockside conversion.
The couple, who live in Greece, are moving into their new home at Lock Warehouse at Gloucester docks, which officially opened to the public last week.
Dennis said they were impressed with the docks and the work that was going on there.
He said: "We love the regenerating feel of the docks area and the waterside setting. Also the original features."

Dennis, a former engineer, and Barbara, who ran small village shop in their Sparta home in Greece, will now divide their time between the two countries.
The pair chose Gloucester, despite having no existing ties with the city, for its mix of country and urban and also because it is centrally located for their UK relatives and friends. They also like being close to the Forest of Dean and the Cotswolds.
In Greece, Barbara and Dennis live in a tiny mountain village, 1,000 metres above sea level.
They recently began to dislike staying in hotels or with kind friends when they come back - usually for a few months at a time every winter.
And the couple have decided to buy rather than rent.
