Sharpness Docks

 

Today we walked to Sharpness Docks, via the riverside path which brought us out near the dry docks where this fishing boat and tug were in for work on them, don’t fancy having to pressure wash either of them!

The ship in the next 2 photos, “Echion”, was unloading fertiliser, hence the red flag being flown alongside the red ensign, signifying carrying explosive materials, which fertiliser can be. She is flying the national flag for Liberia.

This last photo is a general view of the docks taken from the Dockers Club, where we had a nice lunch and a pint of Worthington’s Cask Ale, which was their guest ale.
