Here is a view of Preston Dock with the power station in the background and the gantry supplying the coal across the river.

The little dredger was built for the port and was originally dumb, with two hoppers and a crane in the middle. At some time it was bought by Carmet Tug Co and eventually was owned in Kilkeel Harbour in County Down. By this time it had been fitted with twin harbour master propulsion units. In the 1980s we towed it from Kilkeel to Belfast with our tug Salisbury,where it was lifted out of the water and transported by road to Lough Neagh for sand dredging. At the time it was apparently the biggest load ever to move by road in Ulster. Will post picture when I am in my office tomorrow. Stephen
