LV18 ship plans go to councilPosted: December 5, 2009
Interesting piece in the (Harwich local) press about the LV18, the lightship that has been used for a number of radio-related events over the years. Apparently there are some objections to plans to bring it to the quayside in Harwich permanently.
Radio aside, I can’t think of a better attraction for a town whose existance is so entwined with British maritime history than a marine/lightship exhibit/museum.
I’ll watch this one with interest.
By the way, although the article says this is the only remaining lightship, there are examples of very similar lightsship still complete in Ireland – currently located at Arklow, Co. Wicklow, Kilmore Quay, Co. Wexford, and Dublin’s North Wall Quay.
