Searle's Boatyard


A casualty of progress! A river without boats? Whilst much has been done to retain the heritage of old buildings in the Port, the development across the river has earmarked this boatyard for closure.

Searle's boatyard has been in operation since 1911, but was meant to be vacated by the 30th June. The owner declared to fight the decision, and as of last Friday (4th July) when I took the photos, it appears that he is still there; I know not for how long.
