Sunken Wherry at Surlingham 

Of his work, Peter says:

"It’s the end of an era, really rather sad. So much craft, skill, know-how just gets swept aside. All very practical. Imagine what value in terms of interest the wherries would have these days. Another sunken wherry lies downstream of the Norwich sewage works and lies near the remains of a bridge (the wooden supports are still there) close to the dyke entrance’’
