Treadmill Cranes were commonly used in the early dockyards for heavy lifting. I understand that there is one in Harwich, UK, which was installed in the dockyard there in 1667.

....Although I've been pretty close to Harwich I've never actually been into the town, but I've watched the shipping go into there.

Here is the crane you mentioned.

Back on '05 we built a gyn in Portsmouth Dockyard (literally right next to HMS Victory) for the lowering of supplies into boats.
