Medway developments 2

Last year, Rob Powell and I witnessed the demolition of a Medway landmark – a power station chimney which could be seen for miles.

Now Rob – a keen member of the Greenwich Historical Society – also keeps me aware of down-river activities.

His calendar project is wonderfully illustrated with Thames happenings.

A recent sighting of a heavy lift ship alongside Tilbury Power Station (coal fired) tells the tale as the specialist cranes and plant are to be removed ready for a new port terminal.

Proposals as illustrated – thank you Rob.

    Portwey, the steam tug in the January photo of Rob’s calendar, is doing trips during the Tall Ships Race Rendezvous at Greenwich this Easter. It’s a great way to inspect the vessels!
