21 January

Note to self - always remember to check tide times and height when going for a walk along the Thames tow-path. With all the rain of late and a rather high tide today, we didn't quite make it the the higher land before the tide made it to us... we were yards away from not getting wet...

yes -- builders of boats and submarines! 62 miles from the sea!

Taken from the Richmond and Twickenham Times

Mark Edwards, owner of Richmond Bridge Boathouses, also constructed a replica of a 17th century submarine for the BBC TV series Building The Impossible.

"I was employed to build a copy of the first ever submarine, which had been designed by a Dutchman in London in 1621. It took twelve weeks and twelve men to build it. It became a race against time and we had no plans to refer to. It was probably the best project I have done as it was such a challenge. It is now exhibiting in Holland but I hope one day it will return to Heron Square," he says.
