  • I spoke to Mark Thres at the launch of my latest book, The Jottings of a Thames Estuary Ditch-crawler, at which he showed me ‘the chart’ however, it is not a chart as such, but a pilotage chartlet page from a pilot book. It was interesting though. Nick Ardley.

  • I was fascinated with this section of chart from the 1940s: I have recently written about changes to the area east of Canvey Point, specifically the way the channels leading into the Ray have changed over the last 120 years – back to the start of the Corinthian sailing era. The writing is within a chapter in a book due to be published in around six months time. I would, if possible, like to gain sight of this old chart, or, preferably, obtain a clear copy. Is this possible, or can you put me in touch with the charts owner. Copyright, of course, still rests with the UK Hydrographic Office… Many thanks, Nick Ardley
