Fleetwood Marsh is a salt marsh bounded by the River Wyre and Fleetwood. It is home to wildlife and also many old fishing boats from the Fleetwood fleet. The fishermen were paid by the Government to decommission their boats, once done the boats were grounded on the marsh and stripped. What is left are the rotting hulls of once proud fishing boats.

    Like this one, great composition..

  • Thanks Jason, I wish I knew the name of the boat half in the ditch. I was surprised how little damage has been done through the Winter especially as last year the planking on the bow of the wood hull was flapping about.

    Excellent shot John, a fave for me. I love going up there shooting these old wrecks.

  • Gary, I cannot keep away from them. If you fancy company give me a shout. On my first visit I managed to fall into the ditch you see in this shot. I was on my own, felt a right fool driving home in my undies as the jeans were covered in mud!
