28k53: River Hull, view south from the east
bank below North Bridge, 1981 - River Hull
Images on this site are arranged into rough areas by location as in my book 'Still Occupied', available on Blurb. Eventually this site will contain all the images in that book and more.
The swinging area was in a fairly deserted area when I was there, with a few small craft in the picture moored at the back of it behind the Clarence Mills. Swinging areas were to allow boats to turn around in the fairly narrow River Hull, and on a later occasion I photographed this area being used for that purpose.
The leftmost boat has the name 'Commander Snowden' on top of the cabin and was apparently at one time to be the reserve Hull roads launch for the pilot cutter and was a former fishing boat in the Scottish Lochs.
