Excellent. So this berth was used by Sunward ferries - I've not heard of them before :-( , I will have to do some research, and then only used occasionaly by FE2 as a emergency berth - I assume when the normal berth is out of action. Did FE2 use this berth much then? Is there any remains from the Princess Alexandra Dock berth?

Thanks, Most appreciated,

:-D
