Morning all and welcome to a December Ships Blog. Beautiful sunny day in the harbour after quite a foggy start. Todays pictures include the dredger Rufford II which has commenced dredging here at Shotley. The campaign is probabaly going to be approximately for four weeks and will overlap with lock closure in January. If you have any queries regarding the dredge please do not hesitate to call the Control Tower on 01473 788982. Rest assured there will be access to and from the marina at all times except during lock closure.
