End of an Era at Standard Quay
Tim Goldsack’s Decima has floated out of the dock today and will sail for Heybridge on Thursday, wind and tide permitting. The dock will be towed to Oare on Wednesday, leaving the Beric, which will sail for the Blackwater in a few weeks, then the Henry will be all alone.
Get down and see them before they go.
This will be the first time this century that Standard Quay has been down to just one Thames Barge. The problem now is that the shipwrights have all moved on and so will the floating docks. With no resident Shipwrights or facilities, the barges will go where the resources are set up ready for them,
What happens now to Standard Quay as a centre for Barges?
