Stone boat at Awre.
The stone boat tied up on the riverbank at Awre.
Jim recalled that the boat sailed up the Wye to collect stone from the Livox quarry, near Tidenham, and sailed back up the Severn to Awre, where the stone was used to help prevent erosion of the river bank.
Thanks also to Robin Phelps.
