This coming Thursday, a replica of 18th century Square Rigger, The Zong – an infamous slave ship will moor near Tower Bridge and remain there for 10 days.the_zong_slave_ship_wilberforce.jpg

According to the MoD website, it will go through Tower Bridge at 10:45am and will be accompanied by HMS Northumberland.

Should be quite a sight as it goes under the Bridge, and I shall dutifully race along on Thursday morning to get some photos.

I am tempted to risk taking the river taxi and see if we can zoom past the sailing ship and get some really good close up photos, but if the taxi gets held back, I would lose all the photo opportunities. Might try that as the ship leaves in a couple of weeks time though.
