Viewed from the top of the ramp leading the Thames Path up the relatively new ‘missing link‘ east of Thames Side Studios on the Woolwich-Charlton border, the Thames Barrier and the former Mersey ferry ‘Royal Iris’. The latter, which has featured here before, looks a little sadder each year. I saw a rumour on Twitter that it is likely to be cut up soon, but haven’t been able to confirm it – if you know better, get in touch!
Now available: print of the Royal Iris boat – formerly a Mersey Ferry (on which the Beatles are said to have played pre-Beatlemania), now mouldering on the Thames, moored up by Woolwich, fate uncertain.

The former Mersey Ferry MV Royal Iris, moored on the Thames next to Second Floor Studios & Arts on the Woolwich/Charlton borders. There’s a group hoping to ‘Save the Royal Iris‘ and return her to the Mersey; I wish them luck, but it’s difficult to be optimistic looking at her current state.
