Glad you managed to get her. I didn't have my mountain climbing shoes on and she sneaked out in the dark..........

Well the bund that was created between Wensleydale Terrace and the Import Dock, sorry South Harbour, when the large yellow sheds were constructed has now been removed. Thats because IHC etc have so many people there they need car parking space and a road for traffic!
Oh and I had my Kendal mint cake before I started upwards
:lol:

Except that you have now totally confused people as to the location of said vessel. She was actually on Battleship. The removal of the South Harbour Bund does not open up any views of shipping, but does allow you to get a sneaky look at what's going on where all the reels are.

Unfortunately another section is being fenced off in the South Harbour to allow more room for Yacht Storage. I'm hoping they will leave a pathway clear behind it, or its another angle lost :cry:

Noticed that down the Import Dock last time I was down. I would hazard a guess that there will be no path down to where the security gate is for the yatcht club. The gate might stop where it is and access will be from the existing entrance.
And when you get your climbing boot s on Paul you will see that the existing fence behind the bund at Bates has been heightened so that it is roughly the same height as the new wall running along Crawford Street.
