I RECENTLY took a flight on the Thames cable car (Emirates Air Line) over the River Thames. The journey takes you from the Royal Victoria Dock over to the Greenwich Peninsula and back.
Whilst half way across and suspended in mid-air, I took this photograph of the James Prior sandbarge just leaving her wharf at Royal Victoria Dock after discharging her cargo of sand and heading back up the river.
In the foreground is another Prior sand-barge, Bert Prior, awaiting clearance to enter the wharf with another cargo of sand.
For those of you that like to see the Thames and its shipping from a different view, I can highly recommend this flight across the river.
