Diving Bell No.1 1852

Channel 4 TV programme "Britain at Low Tide:" Second Series Programme 3 (of 6) featured the River Clyde.
Among other items they featured the wooden wrecks dumped behind Newshot Isle. Many wooden Clyde Navigaton Trust punts which pre-dated the Hoppers which took spoil from the dredgers down river to dump. There were schooner destroyed c1914 in a big fire that engulfed Kingston Dock in central Glasgow.
Diving Bell No.1 with her "bell" researched. Some shots from the TV.

There was an article in The Herald on Saturday 3 March about this and, as I stay reasonably close, I watched the programme. Hope to get down there when the weather improves to see it for myself.
