June 2013: All that’s left of the Glamorgan Canal, seen at its best in the spring. It is the last remaining section of water, perhaps two-thirds of a mile long, of the once famous canal that brought coal and iron from the Welsh Valleys to the sea. Coal that fired the steam ships all around the globe and railway lines that carried trains in countries as far apart as America, Australia and Russia.

May 2013: On Good Friday 2013 the 36ft wooden yacht Kahu Kura broke its moorings in the Avon and Heathcote Estuary and was washed out to sea to fetch up on the beach at nearby Sumner. Attempts to re-float it proved futile and within three days she had attracted the attention of vandals, been battered by the tide and had sunk into the sand. Uninsured, she was boken up and taken away, although her keel remains buried still.
