TQ7079 : The Dutch ketch 'Iris' entering the Lower Hope

taken 4 years ago, 3 km from Mucking, Thurrock, Great Britain

The Dutch ketch 'Iris' entering the Lower Hope
The Dutch ketch 'Iris' entering the Lower Hope
Seen as Iris turns into the Lower Hope, bound for Greenwich after taking part in the 2014 Tall Ships Race.

This shot was taken shortly after TQ7179 : The Dutch ketch 'Iris', off Lower Hope Point and gives a bit more context, making accurate location possible. The green marker buoy (which Iris is about to leave to starboard) is Mucking No. 3. Overlaying a PLA chart on the OS mapping suggests a grid reference for the buoy of TQ 709 795. I'm led to the surprising conclusion that I took my photo of the vessel from a range of about 900m!

A land-mark visible near the right-hand margin of the photo is the water tower at the derelict Fisons site, grid ref.: TQ 69838 81485. LinkExternal link
