Dock master's house at Sharpness Docks
Dock master's house at Sharpness Docks
I'd love to live here: it has the most amazing view along the Severn Estuary. Mind you, I imagine it's pretty bleak when the weather gets down and dirty. Anyway, this was once the home of the Sharpness dock master. Since 1986 it has been the base of the Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA), who do all sorts of sterling work rescuing people from water - based peril. Taken on film, through the mist, with a slightly malfunctioning Voigtlander Bessamatic!
