Battersea Cranes arrive at Tilbury

Posted on Updated on

Another barge full of sections of the two Battersea Power Station cranes arrived at Tilbury Dock today for storage before being restored in the next few years ready to return to the Power Station in 2017.

These shots were kindly taken by Malcolm Hooley of the SWS BREDA entering Tilbury Lock
