Kate Goole dock songs (14) Goole dock songs 04 Mar 04

Working on a film project for tomorrow morning. I wonder if anyone might be able to help me find a piece of music to compliment the piece. It can be a literal match or something that would just hint at the tone of the piece.

It's about a guy who's returning to his former workplace - a 65 foot No 5 Compartment Boat Hoist on the South Dock of Goole. It was built in 1912 to haul coal barges (known locally as Tom Puddings)out of the water. The coal was then tipped into a ship and taken for export. They were put out of service as the mining industry started to demise in the area. Apparently Goole had previously been one of the major exporters of coal pre-war, transporting about 3 million tonnes a year.

I'm sorry this is such a long ramble about it but if any element of it strikes up an idea of what music could be used alongside I'd be extremely grateful. I'm looking for something either traditional or classical. I've got some beautiful pictures of this amazingly striking structure backlit against the sky.

Can anyone help?
