This recording is on the Waverley again, coming down from Tower Pier in Middlesex on the Kent side of the river, port is Essex, starboard Kent.
Two parts: first of all you should just about be able to hear a siren, this is from the heavy plant moving about the landfill site, there’s a break because after that it’s mostly a man on his ‘phone. The second part is Jeremey from The PSPS [Paddle Steamer Preservation Society] giving his commentary, a little bit distorted but gives you all the facts about this part of Essex. If you can also hear a rattling that is the bulbs in a light fitting vibrating, a familiar sound.
The first photo is from 29th Sept going upstream, the last 2 from the recording date.
