Two steel barges used to construct a slipway.
Unpowered steel barge.
The barges were deliberately placed on the foreshore in 2005 as reinforcement for a boatyard slipway but were removed in 2021.
The steel barges were largely intact; the decks still had bollards, hold coaming and tow points fitted and the holds were lined with timber dunnage on the floor and battens on the sides. These vessels were similar in style to the barge Laira Bridge 1.

The barges were in Boston's yard at Bayly's Wharf in Oreston but have now been removed.
The barges are on private land so are not accessible to the public.
