Scrapping - Newhaven - 8.7.2014

Scrapping - Newhaven - 8.7.2014
It is not clear whether the cut being made in this photo is the start of the hull's scrapping or relates to the removal of some of the internal parts attached to that section of hull.
12.7.2014 - It's now clear that this was the start of the removal of a squarish piece of the hull, extending down to the lowest visible horizontal rib and back to where the deck is shown in this shot. I took more photos today which will show the current condition.

Hans van Dongen, FrigateRN have particularly liked this photo

Interesting capture, poor old ship.

It is right beside the town centre ring-road and it has been a feature of the landscape since we moved about four miles east of here, five years ago. So it will be missed.
