The Great Tilbury Escape (of 2014)
Revealing and scenic glimpses of a voyage from Tilbury to Blackwater
…that almost didn’t happen.
The Port of Tilbury had been home to our ship the Ross Revenge for ten years, but the port authority eventually decided that it was time for her to either leave or be compulsorily scrapped.
On the last day of July 2014 we sneaked her out on to the Thames and headed for a new location on the wide River Blackwater in Essex.
This approximately one-hour DVD, with backing tracks of poignant songs, presents the background, the final preparations, the departure, the voyage and the final arrival at Bradwell, where she now sits at anchor.
