This ones for you John she had to be a Letterkenny
runner she's got that look to her, Dont know who took this very nice photo but was taken in the Port of Wells next the Sea just West of Cromer on the Norfolk coast it was always a friendly little port and the end of your Gangway was nearly in the public Bar of ''The Golden Fleece''.

You should know her too Peter . She looks to me like the DINA later to become the ASH LAKE ?? What a marvellous photo . Austins , Leyland , Foden everywhere . Just like we would have at home. A prize posting . Well done Peter.

Hi John,
Yes I thought she had a familar look to her, thats probably it the Dina, did she ever come your way at all ??
I always loved running to this Port it was a proper little Peyton place in its day, sadly commercial Traffic is no longer, the last comercial vessel to run there was the Dutch Sailer Albatross..

John,
The wagons are "Albions" I think, We also have an Austin A.40 Devon + Austin Cambridge / Morris Oxford.
The old black one could be a Vauxhall, I stand to be corected............

Billy,
Definitley Albions, as a child I remember them well as we lived near a sand quary and there was a fleet of them running sand and Gravel, Hall & Co Ltd of Ipswich. and the car on the left Morris Oxford also used by the Police..
Wells was the port were the Function ended up in the car park during a NW storm and spring Tide, they lifted her back in the water with 2 heavy lift cranes....

NO ENTRY: can't the people read? Neither the pedestrian couple, nor the elbow in the Austin-A-something? Tut tut. Anyway, lovely picture Peter. Regards, Stein.

Are you a local to Wells Peter?

I used to call in there regularly when we took the kids on holiday to Cromer or Sheringham. Lovely peaceful little place.

Hi Brian,
No I'm not a local from wells but ran into there many many times with different cargoes and I must admit it is or was a great little place the locals really friendly and helpful as one usually finds in these tiny ports. maximum draught to get in there on springs was about 2.90 mtrs and that was pushing it sometimes, i'll post some more photos of the Port and ships..

Yes, she's definately the Dina later Ash Lake. As the Ash Lake she was a firm favourite running exclusively from Northfleet to Newport Isle of Wight with cement. This is the first photo I've seen of her as anything other than Ash Lake. The last I heard she was berthed on the River Seine as a houseboat.

I stand corrected. She looks so much like the ASH LAKE that I thought that it must be her. Mind you, so many of these photos are before my time so I shouldn't really make assumptions......

Cheers
Phil

Hi Tim,
Great to hear that your father is on that photo, surprising what comes up on this site, maybe you can help me with the origens of the foto as to who took the foto ect, I personally used to love running into wells, the atmosphere and the typicall norfolk humor that one would encounter in the public bar of the fleece, A friend of mine moved their many years ago Albie Bulbeck from Ipswich do you know,? him at the moment he,s skipper on the Burhou 1, he used to run in their with the Subro Viking and Sea Husky years ago, and the able brothers are they still about ?? one was the pilot and the other was the quay foreman..
