WW2 Concrete Barges, Lymm

Lymm.jpg



Hidden away in a small corner of woodland, just off the Manchester Ship Canal in Lymm are these 3 concrete barges

The area is quite overgrown, but easy enough to access once you know where to look

Possibly linked to "Mulberry Harbour"

The Mulberry Harbour was built for D-Day in June 1944, it's purpose was to ease and speed up the unloading process so that Allied troops were supplied as they advanced across France after breaking out from Normandy and was one of the greatest engineering feats of World War Two


Whilst in the Area with Stepping Lightly looking for venues for a highline we decided to take a quick detour to see the barges up close
