River Medina at Folly

River Medina at Folly

FOR SALE - Looking east across the River Medina towards the Folly Inn which is very popular with yachtsmen in the summer months. History has it that The Folly originated from a barge that ran aground whilst selling illegal liquor in the 1700s! The foreground is the mainly inaccessable west bank of the river, which makes it ideal for wild birds, and has extensive mud flats exposed at low tide which are frequented by wading birds.

River Thames Charlton Buoys

River Thames Charlton Buoys

SOLD - Anyone familiar with the Thames Flood Barrier might be interested to see the site as it was in years gone by. The mooring was known as Charlton Buoys and was where ships used to moor.

 
River Thames GSN Irongate Wharf

River Thames GSN Irongate Wharf

SOLD - This was mentioned in 1598 as a place for landing grain. The wharf was destroyed by a fire in 1846. In 1854, the London, Leith, Edinburgh and Glasgow Steam Packet Company used the site as its London terminal. The wharf became the major London base for the General Steam Navigation Company, which operated regular cargo services to several European ports. The wharf area is now part of the Thames riverside walk.

 
River Thames Pool of London (2)

River Thames Pool of London (2)

FOR SALE - Even after the construction of off-river docks, the Pool of London remained an important part of the Port of London. Shipping needed unrestricted access to the Pool of London which imposed constraints on the crossings that became increasingly necessary with the commercial development on both sides of the river. The Thames Tunnel from Rotherhithe to Wapping was constructed between 1825 and 1843. Tower Bridge opened in 1894 as a bascule bridge. In 1909 the Pool came under the jurisdiction of the Port of London Authority.

The Thames Tunnel from Rotherhithe to Wapping was constructed between 1825 and 1843. Tower Bridge opened in 1894 as a bascule bridge. In 1909 the Pool came under the jurisdiction of the Port of London Authority. The abrupt collapse of commercial traffic in the Thames due to the introduction of shipping containers and coastal deep-water ports in the 1960s emptied the Pool and led to all of the wharves being closed down, and many being demolished. The area was extensively redeveloped in the 1980s and 1990s to create new residential and commercial neighbourhoods.

Ronda Spain

Ronda Spain

FOR SALE - Ronda retains much of its historic charm, particularly its old town. It is famous worldwide for its dramatic escarpments and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge. The Puente Nuevo "New Bridge" is the newest and largest of three bridges that span the 390 ft deep chasm that carries the Guadalevín River and divides the city of Ronda.

 
Runswick Bay Cottages

Runswick Bay Cottages

FOR SALE - Runswick Bay on the Yoekshire coast has been inhabited since before Roman times, as burial mounds found on the moors behind the village suggest, but never has its appeal been more apparent than now. This delightful hideaway, with its steep track down into the bay, is another picture postcard example of the East Coast delights, its sheltered anchorage offering an ideal spot for fishermen, whalers and smugglers. Over the years Runswick has suffered the ravages of time and terrible weather and in 1682 a landslide destroyed the entire settlement with the exception of one cottage. Fortunately no-one was hurt because two mourners attending a wake realised what was happening and evacuated the village. A new community was built on the cliff side but its precarious position has always made it vulnerable to the forces of nature.

 
Runswick Bay Yorkshire

Runswick Bay Yorkshire

FOR SALE - With its sweeping, sheltered bay and charming red roofed cottages, Runswick Bay is one of the Yorkshire Coast's prettiest destinations. The sandy beach, which once provided anchorage for brightly coloured fishing boats, is now a family favourite for rock pooling, fossil hunting and coastal walks, where you can admire the breathtaking sea views.

 
Ryde - aground on the sands

Ryde - aground on the sands

SOLD - This is the Thames sailing barge Alice aground on Ryde Sands. The sands are exposed for many hours at low tide which give ample time to clean and paint the bottom.

 
Ryde Pier c 1960

Ryde Pier c 1960

FOR SALE - This shows one of the British Railways paddle steamers calling at the Pier Head. By this time the life of the paddle steamers were coming to an end as the service was mainly operated by more cost effective motor vessels. They ran a regular service from here to Portsmouth Harbour Station, but during the summer months they ran many excursion trips from here. In June 1924 Ryde Pier was purchased by the Southern Railway Company who were responsible for rebuilding the pier-head in concrete during the early 1930s. After the Second World War business continued as usual, the only real change being the conversion of the pavilion in to a ballroom. Like most piers, Ryde Pier was to suffer a decline in fortune by the late 1960s. The tramway pier closed in 1969 and was partially dismantled leaving gaps between the railway and promenade piers, and the poor condition of the substructure at the pier-head resulted in the demolition of the pavilion in 1971.

 
Rye (2)

Rye (2)

FOR SALE - Rye is a small town in East Sussex, England, which stands approximately two miles from the open sea and is at the confluence of three rivers: the Rother, the Tillingham and the Brede. In medieval times, however, as an important member of the Cinque Ports confederation, it was at the head of an embayment of the English Channel and almost entirely surrounded by the sea. Rye is officially a civil parish but with its historic roots has the status of a town; at the 2001 census it had a population of about 4000. During its history its association with the sea has included providing ships for the service of the King in time of war, and being involved with smuggling gangs of the 18th and 19th centuries such as the notorious Hawkhurst Gang who used its inns such as The Mermaid Inn and The Olde Bell Inn, connected by secret passage way. Those historic roots and its charm make it a tourist destination, and much of its economy is based on that: there are a number of hotels, guest houses, B&Bs, tea rooms and restaurants, as well as other attractions, catering for the visitor. There is a small fishing fleet, and Rye Harbour has facilities for yachts and other vessels.

 
Rye - The Fish Dock

Rye - The Fish Dock

SOLD - Once surrounded by sea, the fortified hilltop town of Rye played an important role in the defence of the south coast of England. These days, the river no longer harbours warships and is home to the local fishing fleet. St Mary's church tower offers the best viewpoint to show the terracotta roofs of the many timbered houses. Many authors, musicians, artists and celebrities have made Rye their home, a medieval haven periodically visited by Royalty.

Salford Docks

Salford Docks

SOLD - Manchester Docks were a series of nine docks in Salford, Stretford and Manchester at the east end of the Manchester Ship Canal. They formed part of the Port of Manchester from 1894 until their closure in 1982. The docks marked the upper reaches of the ship canal, and were a destination for both coastal and ocean-bound vessels carrying cargo and a limited number of passengers, often travelling to and from Canada. This scene shows one of the many vessels operated by Manchester Liners. Manchester Docks were divided into two sections; the larger Salford Docks to the west of the Trafford Road swing bridge and Pomona Docks to the east. During much of 1948, Manchester Docks were Britain's third busiest port owing to damage suffered by the Port of Hull during the Hull Blitz. During the 1970s the docks began a rapid decline, largely due to containerisation. The increasing size of freight-carrying ships meant they could no longer navigate the ship canal and this, combined with increased trading with Europe and the east, saw use of Manchester Docks decrease. In 1982 the remaining docks closed and the area became derelict. Recognising the need to redevelop the area, Salford Docks were purchased by Salford City Council in 1984 using a derelict land grant. The Salford Quays Development Plan was adopted in May 1985, proposing complete reclamation and development of the area for commercial, residential and leisure use.

Santa Margherita - The Harbour

Santa Margherita - The Harbour

FOR SALE - Santa Margherita Ligure is a smart beach resort and harbour two miles north of Portofino and just over a mile south west of Rapallo. Formerly an important base for coral fishermen, the town’s waterfront is now an attractive jumble of terraced fishermen’s houses and luxury hotels and restaurants. The town’s busy harbour offers a convenient alternative to jam-packed Portofino and busy Rapallo for yachts cruising the eastern part of the Ligurian coast.
