    You may well be correct. I saw the boat moored outside of Spirit Yachts and I believe it was for sale for many millions of pounds. She came past me as if I was standing still.

    So where have Fox's blocked navigation?

    Without the dredging for Fox's marina I doubt there would be much navigation to be had in Oystrich creek

Fox's are themselves obstructions to navigation but unless you have lived in or visited Ipswich for years you are unlikely to recognise the creek from this map;

    Ostrich Creek also known as Bourne Creek was a great place to moor or just picnic. The problem was caused by a former harbour master locating Fox's without lawful reason and the river owner allowing the West Bank to be filled in and built up. All the residents in Wherstead Road lost their moorings they had at the bottom of their gardens and walkers lost a Right of Way. I often walked along this route along to Bourne Bridge. There never was a creek such as it is now.
