Swifty, ironic isn't it. Think of the number of ships built there, now we are scrapping them! Death of an industry....

yes youre right stanley it is crazy what goes around ,, bodger as an apprentice driver i was told there was two types of drivers  ,,,, and youve picked them both up screwdrivers ,,,and good drivers without being to big headed im not to bad ,,,ha ha the machine on the brick stack is a little larger than my cat  only a couple of meters,,,  i love high reaches but its not the best for cutting ships up in the pool working 40 foot below the tracks aint for the faint hearted ,,,

Here's a picture for Peter (Tizer) who asked me about Oatey and Martyn  (Ironfounders ) of Wadebridge ...How many edits ?...Ha

This is what was the office building and pattern store  , the rest of the site has largely been built over ,  but I have been invited to explore .....The owners children are our piano and guitar  pupils !
