NX4844 : Mulberry Harbour Prototype

taken 15 years ago, near to Garlieston, Dumfries And Galloway, Great Britain

Mulberry Harbour Prototype
Mulberry Harbour Prototype
Remains of a Mulberry Harbour Prototype (floating harbours used during the 2nd World War D-Day landings) pictured at an extremely low tide. The floating harbours were tested in this area of South Scotland as the tides rise and fall hugely like on the North of France. The structure collapsed during a storm on March 16th, 2006 making this probably the last image of it seen standing. The base concrete blocks are still visible at low tides. For the first time in over 50 years this sight will not welcome visitors to Rigg (Cruggleton) Bay.
