Here’s part 3 and 4 of a four part series by Shipping TV’s Chris Gosling. Chris is usually in the port of Felixstowe aboard some of the world’s biggest ships or the tugs that maneuver them, but in this series he brings it back to basics aboard the 1969-built 295 dwt sand barge, Mark Prior, on its daily round trip up the River Thames to Deptford Creek.
Part 3 includes a pass close-by London Gateway and Tilbury ports, and the approach London.
In part 4, they sail through the Thames Barrier, past the Millenium Dome, under the cable car and into Deptford Creek, where they go into the berth under the bridge, astern.
