    I did know that! My ex FIL worked for port as a designer many years ago. Sadly no longer with us, a nice bloke. He could see the cranes from his window, he always said that if all the cranes were in the ‘up’ position then we were in for a recession.
    Pardon?

    I suspect the conditions weren't right for Reminder to get there, think she spent the night at Pinmill.

    There are probably several strange ownerships around. I think most of the Naze and the Sokens used to belong to St Paul's.

    I was there the other week and one chap was very grumpy. He'd booked a space on the inside to get some repairs done to his yacht, and a motorboat had taken his place and the owners had disappeared.

    My Uncle and his brother used to farm most of this land for decades. I had many childhood holidays there in the 50's

    According to my cousin, Trinity College offered to sell them the farm (3000 acres) for 10 an acre. He turned the offer down as too expensive ! In the agricultural depression in the 30's, I believe.
