cleaning uggs Things you never knew about Preston Docks

The rapid expansion of industry in the industrial revolution and the need for heavy import on the doorstep of Preston’s manufacturing and distribution service industries led to the building of a major dock

First, the river was diverted (by The Ribble Navigation Companies) in 1893

Victoria’s second son (Prince Alfred was known as “The Sailor Prince” because he was a Commander of the Fleet in the Royal Navy at the time he opened the Dock. In the following year he was promoted to Admiral of the Fleet.

The owners of Preston’s cotton mills opposed the dock venture and formed a political party; “The Party of Caution”, to contest local elections with the manifesto of stopping the spending of public money on building the Dock. Their true incentive was that they feared that the Dock, and the industries it would attract, would provide an abundance of employment for the people of Preston and hence drive up the cost of labour.

There was no single industry which drove the development of the dock. Thomas Ward’s ship breaking yard)

Full moon rising over the Docks

The Albert Edward basin is 3,000ft long by 600ft wide and was the largest single dock in Europe

Large ships have captains, but for safety, when they enter the waters of a port they are often placed under the control of a Pilot who knows tides, currents, channel depths and conventions peculiar at the port. The Pilots for Preston Dock were based at Lytham and used to go out to sea to meet the ships and bring them safely up the river to the dock. The point at which arriving vessels could await the Pilot is known as “safe water” and was marked by the Nelson Buoys now displayed at the road junctions of Riversway/Port Way and Riversway/Pedder’s Way.

The estuary can be a dangerous place: in 1886 the Mexico, a German ship, sank in the Ribble estuary. It had set off from Liverpool to Ecuador but was driven back by a severe storm at night, becoming grounded in the mouth of the River Ribble. Three lifeboats set out rowing from St Annes, Lytham and Southport in heavy seas. Two lifeboats were lost with 27 crewmen; the largest loss of lifeboat crew in the UK.

The navigable channel in the river is marked to show the hazard of the “training walls” that confine deeper water. They are marked with “perches” and “lights” known as “Aids to Navigation”. Some are “Statutory Marks” which are required by the regulating body: Trinity House. Most of the Aids in the river and estuary are “Port” or “Starboard” Marks.

Port (Left / Red / barrel or can) Starboard (Right / Green / triangular or conical)

The river can only be navigated around the high water time of tide and ships have to be “locked up” into the waters of the dock, which are kept as near to Spring Tide level as possible. Water to fill the Dock only comes from the river and is “impounded” at suitably high tides by letting it flow in through the Lock Gates and then closing the gates when the tide is at its highest.

Water depths are critical for navigation to Preston and the river used to be dredged to remove sand and keep the channel deep enough for large ships. The cost of dredging was pivotal in the economics of the Dock and the drain on income meant that throughout the 89 year life of the Dock it was only in profit for 17 years

As ships got bigger and bigger the channel became too shallow for the newer, bigger, ships to navigate and it became too expensive to keep dredging. The port became uneconomic and was closed in 1981 by Act of Parliament.

Preston Dock was the first “Roll On/Roll Off Ferry Terminal in the UK. The concept was taken up after the Second World War from the “Tank Landing Ships” used on D Day and the installation at Preston utilised a section of the “Mulberry Harbour” assembled in Normandy for landing our troops and supplies. The Ro Ro ferry idea pioneered at Preston ultimately led to containerisation and sea cargo transport as we know it today.

The lock gates are the original ones, installed at the building of the port between 1884 and 1892, and are made of Greenheart main timbers and Iroko planking. Weighing 98 tons each.

The large blue and red 100 Ton crane adjacent to the Control Centre was built in 1958 to remove the gates from the water for refurbishment on land. Large floatation devices were fixed each side of a gate and the gate was then floated out of its fittings and brought through to the crane for lifting. The crane is still used today for lifting bigger boats.

There used to be 38 miles of railway track on the dock. To allow the area to be redeveloped the railway was moved to the south of the basin requiring the building of the 1,000 Tonnes swing bridge.

The railway is used today for commercial freight and for steam excursions from the Ribble Steam Railway museum. A minimum of three freight trains each week, often comprising 12 tankers carrying 74 tonnes each of bitumen are brought into the Total UK distillery on Chain Caul Way.

The season of Monsoon has always been associated with romance and love. It is one of the most beautiful seasons when creativity and love blossom at their best. It is especially celebrated with fervor in India as it brings great relief from scorching heat and is also associated with nature worship in Hinduism. Monsoon spells magic on everybody across different age groups, religions and cultures.

The monsoon season is not an ideal time for marriages in India. However, it can prove to be an ideal setting for a wedding as it unites two people who decide to spend rest of their lives together. But chaos can be created if things are not well prepared in advance or left for the last minute. On the other hand, it can be very exciting to arrange the matrimony at a time that blends pleasant weather, fresh air and blooming flowers. With some prudence, foresight and early arrangements, getting married in monsoons can turn out to be great fun.

The wedding day can become memorable for you and your guests and a perfect ambience of love can be created with just a little forethought. Finalize the venue for wedding at least a month in advance and following some simple monsoon wedding tips below:

The priority at all times should be to make your guests feel comfortable. Wedding attire is the next important thing on the list for Indian weddings in monsoon. They should be made aware of the weather in advance so that they can dress up accordingly. Indians generally dress up heavily for weddings, the prior information would be helpful.

Make arrangements for a water proof tent and always keep a back up plan ready if you are planning to get married in a rainy or windy weather. Don’t let the downpour spoil the fun at your wedding.

Make sure that the guests do not spend their time buzzing off the flies instead of enjoying the occasion. Put some bug repellants or citronella candles to keep the air free of insects and mosquitoes. You must acquire all the permits and get some information on DJ restrictions, parking facilities, generators, etc.

You must arrange for a gazebo especially in the monsoon season to avoid a soggy ground and chairs jutting out in the mud. It will, in fact, make the setting look absorbed in a romantic flavor.

Covering the entrance and the path leading to the Gazebo is extremely crucial. If would not make for a lovely sight if your guests donned in beautiful dresses and heavy jewelry get wet, thus, this needs complete attention.

Location of the wedding venue also becomes significant when getting married in monsoons. Commuting in this season is usually difficult, thus, easy accessibility of the venue should be among primary concerns.

Don’t forget to add some fried and crispy snacks like samosas, pakoras, etc in your wedding menu. Nothing tastes better when it rains; the fragrance of wet mud combined with the taste of hot, fried snacks would further pep up the wedding celebrations.

Put in a little extra effort to make the best of the rainy season by asking your guests to do their bit and augment the fun and mirth at the wedding. Persuade them to carry colorful umbrellas or think of some other creative dress codes to enhance the appeal and fun factor of the wedding.

Marriages in India during the monsoon season can be a truly unique idea and greatly fun filled too. But it requires diligent research and planning to make the wedding successful.

ugg slippers sale uk Things To Pack When Traveling to the Tropics

ugg womens slippers uk Things To Pack When Traveling to the Tropics

When packing to go to the tropics there are some items that you don’t want to forget.

1. Appropriate Identification: With tighter security these days it simply makes sense to carry a passport and photo ID. Also be sure to have identification for your children traveling with you.

2. Contraceptives: Well. If you think you will be getting down and dirty on your trip you should bring contraceptives.

3. Appropriate Clothing: Yes the tropics are warm but if a sudden storm rolls in it can get quite cool, fast. Always bring good shoes, pants and even a light jacket.

I find it is better to pack lightly,

You never know when you will need to carry your luggage for a distance. 3 or 4 full changes of cloths will often be enough.

4. Sunscreen: SPF 30 minimum. Any less and you stand to get burned. A sunscreen should also contain either zinc oxide or titanium oxide.

Before leaving on your trip it is a good idea to spend some time in a tanning bed. This can give you a good base to withstand the intense sun near the equator.

5. Medication: Obviously bring any prescription medication but you should also think about Aspirin, Pepto Bismal and other pharmacy items.

Be sure to carry any medicine in the original package and carry copies of your prescription as well.

6. Guide Book: A guide book to the area that you are visiting can come in real handy. Besides showing you the attractions in the area it will also have important phone numbers in case of an emergency.

7. Cash: Having a credit card and travelers cheques with you is a must. Also carry enough American cash for 2 days of emergency living. You never know when a storm will knock out the power.

8. Snorkel: If you have any plans to go snorkeling you may want to bring you own snorkel and mask, or at least a snorkel. Rentals are shared by many people. If you are packing light a snorkel takes up almost no space.

There is no one best shoe for everyone. It is quite definitely an individual choice based on if you are flat footed, have a high arch, run internally of the foot, or run on the exterior of one’s foot.

When shopping for running shoes, first thing you should do is ascertain your foot kind. This is very easy since it needs a simple test. Simply wet your foot and move onto concrete so you will see the wet outline of the foot.

The footprint with a slight curve is made if your feet is normal and average. If you have normal feet, then you definitely should choose a working shoe that has good cushioning and offers moderate stability within the medial side of the shoe. These shoes tend to be classified as Stableness shoes and Neutral Cushioned footwear.

A damp footprint that shows nearly all of the bottom surface of the foot is named a flat footprint. If you have flat feet, you should for running shoes that provide maximum support on the inner side of the foot or to both sides, like the case of Motion Manage shoes. Choose a stronger midsole that gives moderate cushioning and even more good stability.

A damp footprint that simply shows a sliver of the foot is named a high arched foot. If you have a footprint such as this, you should buy new mens balance shoes online UK has for you which have generous cushioning and flexibility. You don need additional support on the inner (medial) side of the foot.

Running shoes are divided into three main categories, stability footwear, cushioned shoes, and motion control footwear, based on their function. They’re further categorized according to their use such as racing shoes, trail running shoes, and performance shoes.

Motion control running shoes avoid the inward rotation of the foot, which normally occurs with flat footed athletes. This shoe helps prevent injury by being rigid due to the insertion of the medial (and from time to time lateral) post within the inner side of the shoe. These shoes are generally stiff, bulky and heavy.

Cushioned jogging shoes are made to provide balanced cushioning without additional stability devices. They can encourage the inward rotation motion that is without high arches. These shoes may also be very supple. Neutral Cushioned type of shoes can be quite a good selection for runners who have neutral gaits who such as for instance a lighter more versatile shoe than the stability shoes provide.

The stability running shoes offer features present in both other kinds of shoes but to a smaller extent. They give some cushioning and motion control and offer stability to those with a medium arch or typical foot.

When shopping for running shoes, make sure you know how big the foot is. Also, it is recommended to search for shoes in the day when your feet are exhausted and swollen. Make sure to wear the socks you wear when doing your exercises.

Asheville has a lot of nicknames Foodtopia, Ashevegas, Sante Fe East. But “quirky” is the name it really earns. 321 North to I 40), it’s close enough that you can spend a day or a weekend. And while the annual fall leaf season brings long lines, the less crowded seasons have their charms: Dogwood and rhododendron blooms in spring, cooler air in summer and the excuse to stay inside during the wet and cold winter.

2. Explore beer: Claims that Asheville has more breweries per capita than any city in America may not be exaggerated. You’d need a month to do them all justice. Our suggestion, though, is a little out of the way at Highland Brewing Co. in East Asheville, less than 10 minutes from downtown. Retired founder Oscar Wong is considered the godfather of craft brewing here. It’s located on a hilltop with a deck, a rooftop space, an outdoor area called The Meadow and a lot more parking than you’ll find around downtown’s South Slope brewery district. Bonus: Asheville Distilling, maker of Troy Sons whiskeys, is in the same building, so you can get a two fer.

3. Spot the New York references: There’s Wall Street,
ugg boots at office Things to do in Asheville NC
Lexington Avenue, Broadway, Battery Park and even an eight story version of the Flatiron Building, with a giant iron in front in case you miss the point. While some claim that Asheville’s cool mountain summers made it a refuge for New York based financial firms in the days before air conditioning, local historian and tour guide Kevan Frazier dismisses that. Wall Street, he says, was actually named for the wall that holds up that section of downtown, not for the New York financial district. The big city names were more about Asheville’s ambitions in the 1920s, when the city was prospering. “There’s a sense in the ’20s in Asheville of really wanting to be a major player,” he says. The Depression brought the city’s growth to a halt and it was well into the 1980s before prosperity returned. That’s your luck today: With no money to tear down and rebuild, the city’s Gothic Revival architectural gems survived.

6. Shop for . . . everything else: Even if you keep your wallet in your pocket, Grove Arcade is worth a stroll just to admire the 1924 Art Deco building, home to shops, restaurants and an outdoor produce market. Shoe fans should save time for Tops for Shoes,
