    Visited with tweek

    The last time I saw Xan, ex0 and Kromax,was a great day in the smelly oily confines of the former Mobil oil refinery. In and amongst the days banter, they mentioned a certain vessel docked in the area they had their eye on. This vessel turned out to be the Bronnigton, a 60 old mahogany bottomed minesweeper currently undergoing 'repairs' at Birkenhead docks, and it wasn't long after that I got an email containing nothing but a link, a smily face and the word 'enjoy'…
    After tweek came back from the east float with a big grin on his face, I figured it was time I got in the car and made another journey out to the wirral.

    On the way, we visited the Eccels Theatre - a dilapidated old thing with no roof on the way to the M60, last touched by Speed and Dweeb in July. A trip back in the day time is probably on the cards, didn't get anything of note as there were way to many clouds to get away with moonlight alone. Dropping out the theatre we moved on the Wirral and pitched up at the docks.

    The lower decks are damp, really damp. The thing is rotten and slowly sinking into the docks.
