A Sad End
A Sad End
Resting and rotting in Vange Creek and gradually becoming more like a mudbank than a vessel. This is Trinity House Light Vessel LV 44, Newarp. She was built in 1869 by C. Hill and Sons of Bristol. Initially stationed outside Caernarvon Bay, she spent the majority of her service life at Newarp Station in the North Sea. Decommissioned in 1945, she was sold to Erith Yacht Club where she served as a clubhouse. She was subsequently bought by Pitsea Yacht Club. She was grounded here on an exceptional high tide circa 1990.

Apologies for the rain-spots on the lens... it was tipping down by this stage of our stroll round the marshes.
