I get a nice email in from barge book and sailing book author, friend of the Cambria, Nick Ardley. He’s been out exploring the foreshores again and has come across a chunk of the barge, SB Montreal. Nick Takes up the story. Picture is from Nick.
“A little something for you… I was walking (with ‘the Mate’*) between Tilbury Fort and Coal House Fort along the Thames shore last weekend and came across a barge’s ‘badge’ sitting up on the tide line near Tilbury power station. It looked familiar – I photographed it, of course.
