On January 24th and 25th 2020 the Dean’s Marine barge George Dyson made a working trip from Hull’s Albert Dock to York city centre, stopping overnight in Goole along the way. Thank you to John Dean for inviting us on the journey, which was a truly amazing experience. Rich took photos which you can see on the Open Bridges website and I took some video to which I have added our Loudhailer Electric Company track Night Heron as a soundtrack.
