The relentless development of Felixstowe docks and the subsequent impact upon the Haven ports – Ipswich, and Harwich mirrors that old adage of the need to record an area within 6 months of getting there and to continue doing so as the landscape will have changed. Sometimes this is imperceptible, sometimes quite dramatic.
One change in developing the deep water berth at Languard was the removal of the jetty that the tugs used to moor on whilst waiting to shepherd their charges in and out of port. I miss this aspect of the new vista. I have always had a soft spot for the busy fussing about of tugs. Even at rest they have an air of latent energy about them.
