In the early 20th century, a number of old vessels were run aground along the bank of the Severn, near Purton, to create a makeshift tidal erosion barrier to reinforce the narrow strip of land between the river and Sharpness to Gloucester canal. Barges, Trows and Schooners were “hulked” at high tide, and have since filled with silt. More boats have been added, including the schooner “Katherine Ellen” which was impounded in 1921 for running guns to the IRA, the Kennet Canal barge “Harriett”, and Ferrous Concrete Barges built in World War II.

This refined new art gallery in Cheltenham took four days to photograph but it helped in capturing just the right light that I live a few minutes away – a rare luxury!
