The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

MERCURIO

With reference also to picture #13087, picture #13642 and picture #15555; another in this controversial series of ships was ENGLISH BRIDGE completed at Haverton Hill in 1973 and seen here in November 1981 as MERCURIO off Largs on a foul day inbound to Hunterston with an ore cargo.
In November 1986 as KOWLOON BRIDGE again heading for Hunterston she was wrecked off the Irish Coast after cracks developed in her hull and she lost steerage striking rocks.
