    I feel sorry for all the businesses, manufacturing or otherwise that will never recover from the long Lockdown. I've noticed it in my immediate area.

    Latest news suggests that the fire was an accident caused by a stray ember from a rubbish fire blown onto the ancient wooden buildings.The high winds did the rest.
    Tragic shame,such a great loss.

    Has anyone said what caused the fire? Whatever it was it was pretty disastrous. As Colin says, there used to be fireboats on the tidal Thames, but had these still existed, the time factor to get one as far up river as this would have been far too much. Let's be thankfull that only one boat was destroyed, it could have been much worse.

    Hi Martin.
    Must have been terrible to watch as part of your life was destroyed in front of you ☹️☹️.
    Don’t get me on my soap box about what this country used to build and invent in comparison to things today.

    I know what you mean Rick.
    I worked for Vosperthornycroft in Woolston Southampton (Ship yard) for just over 25 years and i watched as it was ripped apart.
    Now the area is flat's and houses.

    How helpless it must feel to watch in horror as history goes up in smoke.
