Govan on the Clyde

Having completed the tour at Fairfields it was a short drive to catch the Govan Ferry across to the North of the river.

Keen to get some photos of the section of (HMS) Prince of Wales - the aircraft carrier currently  under construction.

The section will be moved by barge to Rosyth where it will be assembled with the other section being constructed.

Arranged to go down the river on a RHIB, and thankfully was blessed with a bit of sunshine.
