Photographer's Note

My last set of pictures, for now, from Bigbury on Sea and Burgh Island.

This is the unique Burgh Island Sea Tractor.

Open in a new tab for a larger view.

"The Burgh Island Sea Tractor is a one-of-a-kind feat of engineering.
Designed in 1969 by Robert Jackson CBE in exchange for a case of champagne, and recently renovated to her freshly minted state, the Sea Tractor is the only one of its kind in the world.

It transports guests across tides to Burgh Island where they can enjoy the art-deco splendour of the Burgh Island Hotel, or a drink in the Pilchard Inn.

The Sea Tractor runs the 250 metres, for the guests of the hotel, and members of the public can join the ride for 2 each way."

Two more wider views in the workshop.

Thank you for looking.
