Thanks Mikeb. Could well be as that's where we used to board for the trip to Southend back in the 30's and the freighter/ coaster is at the wharf at Bath Hard .

Thanks Jason, a very interesting article, let's hope the makers of the new film read this beforehand. A very fine photo' of the Medway Queen pre war with Rochester Cathedral & Castle in the background. I'm sure someone can tell me exactly where it is?
