Heavy industry – is it a thing of unnatural beauty, its inner workings a mystery to be wondered at? Or is it an ugly, smoke-belching, sludge-spewing sprawl of ghastliness? A bit of both, maybe.
As we got closer to Southampton Water ships laden with containers sailed into or out of port.
We trudged along a litter-strewn shore. This litter had not been dropped by other people. It had been washed up by the tide. It was not bottles and crisp packets; but pallets, off-cuts of timber, metal and rope. It had become ensnared by tree branches and other driftwood and then washed up in a tangled heap.
