"Shortened to whatever length you want …"

6 Feb

Here’s the tanker barge Dovedale H, built in 1962 and currently for sale (price on application) after many years on the Manchester ship canal. The seller/agent informs us that she is “waiting for survey and then being shortened to whatever length you want” and at nearly 46 metres she might just be a tad too much for messing about on the river.

This old barge or lighter with the odd name of Poem 25 is a fixture in the old harbour of the river. I’ve shown it before here but that was before colour was invented.
