Continuing my Urban Ugliness series: It seems this creek is where they moor old boats that are no longer fit for the sea, where they slowly decay...

Sad....It would be wonderful if someone could bring it back to life. You have in a way by preserving it.

Thank-you so much Mari for your encouraging and kind words. Doing this series has both depressed and uplifted me. Strange, but there you go :)

Pomphlett Creek has had its moments. Not so long ago there was a functioning mill just to the right. The area together with the Laira has only been silted up since the trees in the Plym Forest were felled for use in Great War

Thanks for the additional info JannerSnapper
