and now the Gates are gradually opening

Medway Ports brought in a diver today, to get down into the mud and remove the last bits of rubbish that have prevented the gates from opening fully. He used a high pressure water jet to blow the mud away and expose the lumps that could then be removed by hand.   There is still more work to do before they can fully open but this is real progress and it looks good for the Nautical Festival, when we hope to see small boats in the basin.                         Click on the photos to enlarge.
