TQ8285 : Waiting for the tide

Waiting for the tide
Waiting for the tide
The Leigh-on-Sea cockle boats still go out most days, Summer and Winter, to hoover up their catch from the Thames Estuary. The day's activities for the fishermen is dominated by the ebb and flow of the tide. When the channel reaches a certain tidal level, off they go. Hours later, on the next incoming tide, they return to unload their catch.
