Update 1st October

Posted by RichardMartin on October 1, 2016

Egremont is scheduled to arrive at the entrance to Sharpness Docks at 0930 hrs high water on Sunday 02 October. There is a good viewing area to the west of the docks. Easiest access by road is by approaching Sharpness on the main road and turning left at the last mini-roundabout. Please remember that access to the dock area is controlled and only available by arrangement + high viz waistcoat/jacket+ hard hat + safety boots.

The plan is for the ship to be dry-docked on Monday and then 14 days of ultra high pressure cleaning to expose all the steelwork prior to a full ultrasound survey. Only after this has been done can decisions be taken about the schedule of works. Please watch this space for updates on how we ( volunteers) can help.
