Residents and visitors can see the many beautiful and mainly traditional vessels that have been invited to moor in the upper regions of the Creek over the weekend There will be Thames Sailing Barges, Dutch Barges, tugs, smacks and many smaller boats. The vessels will be ‘dressed overall’ which makes a colourful display, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to see inside these historic vessels and to understand how the large coastal barges were designed to ‘shoot the bridges’ with just a man and a boy as crew. See a short video on Find Us/Media page.
