Viewing the Harker barges
Viewing the Harker barges
My mother - who is a Harker by birth and whose great grandfather founded John Harker Shipyards - looks out to the remains of the two Harker fuel tanker barges involved in the Severn Bridge disaster of October 1960. The hulks of the two barges, the "Arkendale H" and the "Wastdale H", are visible in the centre of the shot, between the saddle and handlebars of the bike.
