reminds me very much of a bath submarine I had when I was a kid. Where is it?

must happen all the time, submarine surfaces, gets half way up and then realises a few milenia has passed and the bloody seas have receded. can just hear the captain 'well just ahve to wait a few years for the seas to come back then well be on our way, anyone for cards?'

In the the Irk Valley. It's called Dreadnowt (Though bless, it's been registered in the Queen's English as "Nothing to Worry About" with the Public Monument and Sculpture Association) made by Jonathan Woolfenden for HMG Paints whose range includes antifouling products. So that all makes sense then.

Would love to see it on Big Art Mob - we're a bit light on dreadnoughts at the moment

That was more or less my reaction, Sahara. Had to stop the car & run back with the phone, much to the amusement of construction workers just out of shot.

Originally it was a steel finish with all the welds & heat marks visible, apparently HMG painted it with a cross of St George for a football tournament & now it's what I assume to be Battleship Grey.
I wish they'd do it in Operation Petticoat pink...

I missed this earlier (been away in London way too much) - absolutely brilliant!

Nice shot too - although I can't tell how big it is.
