Well caught 'new era' shot for the Hoo boats Ken. The backdrop is almost unrecognisable to me now, can just spot the old 'D' Silo (which I think is listed) and part of Spillers' Millennium Mill to remind me of the great flour mills that used to exist on the Victoria Dock.

Hi Derek,
Thanks, right place,right time, the Prior's are quite regular also Dredger's but apart from that not a great deal of movement, Cory's and GPS tugs up and down and of course the ferries at Woolwich.

Regards Ken

Well caught Ken, can't be many coasters passing Woolwich these days.
