Photographer's Note

They may have been a while coming, but this is my 200th posting.

Well actually its only about 200; TE counter says 200 but I have removed a few along the way that didn't quite pass muster.

And why choose this picture ? Well, Gloucester docks are nearly 200 years old. So we're both about 200 !

Gloucester Docks is an extensively restored area, lots done, and lots still to do. I stayed there recently and two days just pottering around was hardly enough, and that was without going in any of the several museums there.

The Docks were built at the northern end of the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal, which in turn was built to bypass the twisting and tidal River Severn . At the time, it was the broadest and deepest canal in the world. Hard to believe when you see it now !

For an insight into the docks, the canal and their history, I would entreat you to look here or here. I could retype a precis, but that would bore those who aren't interested, and frustrate those who are !

Thanks to those who drop by from time to time, my responses are late or non-existant, for which apologies. I will try harder again soon - honestly !
