This is a narrow strip of land between the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal and the Severn estuary which, threatened by the ravages of the tide, was bolstered by the canal company using old boats to strengthen the bank. Several dozen old wooden, metal and concrete craft were dumped here in the 1950s.

What were once abandoned hulks are now a facinating piece of waterway history and a dinosaurs’ graveyard of Britain’s maritime past
