My Sunday Photo – The Gull Lightship

The Gull Lightship

The Gull Lightship as it’s known locally or Lightship No.38 is possibly one of the second oldest lightships in Europe. I’ve been taking pictures of this since we moved to the area and still love capturing it whenever we walk along the river.

    I'm not sure what a lightship is (off to google im a minute) but that is a fab picture. There are several wrecked boats that can be seen along the Severn when the tide is out, but I doubt they are as old as what I am guessing your boat is xx #mysundayphoto Tracey Abrahams recently posted...New Theme: Twenty SeventeenMy Profile
