The urban explorers have been busy again and have taken some wonderful pictures of this derelict boatyard

Fascinating, if sad viewing. What a tragic waste.

I was wondering what was happening there after the fires.  It looks like it is being abandoned, can anyone confirm?  If it is being abandoned perhaps the council can be persuaded to make the slip into a public slipway, there is no decent access upstream from the Strand.  If left to their own devices the council seem to just want to fence off any public access to the river, presumably scared of the "elfunsafety" brigade.
