Thames sailing barges at Maldon

Thames sailing barges at Maldon
Maldon lies on the River Blackwater in Essex. There are still a number of Thames sailing barges berthed here. The two in this shot are the s.b. Pudge and the s.b. Reminder. Pudge is one of the Dunkirk Little Ships, having been involved in the rescue of the British Expeditionary Force from the beaches of Dunkirk in 1940.
