Hello Norman, sound like a messy cargo to be loading so close to the houses.
Can you remind us of the tug there, can just see her stern in this photo.

No mess at all its ball or brick clay which is loaded at Bideford ,no china clay which is powdery only mess is the quay car park after rain and Michael the crane driver has to hose the quay down before any cars get on it become's very greasy.
The tug Goliath has been alongside for over a month waiting for the weather to moderate to before force 4 which was her operating limit as the MSC Simitar on the Manchester Ship Canal You know of course she was built on the river by P.K Harris at Appledore in 1956.
