Dave finds the Northdown

You can’t keep a Barge Nut down!   

Julie may have taken Dave Brooks off to France on holiday, but guess what he finds?   Yes, a barge;  to be precise the Northdown at Port Musee Douarnenez — in Douarnenez, Bretagne.    Here’s the series of pictures he took:-

  1. Back in the 70’s and 80’s, my friend’s husband Steve Barry was master of the Northdown. I think she was was based in St Katherine Dock at Tower Bridge, being used for corporate entertainment. I remember being on board during a barge race from Greenhithe to Greenwich, with a reception afterwards on the Cutty Sark!- Bev

    Steve Barry? The name rings a bell. Was he in charge when I was on board taking photographs for the owners, a City Company with guests on board? I was designing a leaflet and supplied images for publicity. Swale Match, probably 1970s? Shame this contact won’t allow pictures.
