9th July 2019. The volunteers from NCI Calshot visited Southampton docks this week.

The National Coastwatch Institution at Calshot have a well-run and entertaining watchkeepers social club, and this week the members were given the opportunity to visit DP World at Southampton Docks. DP World are responsible for all of the shipping container movements in and out of this busy port. The NCI Calshot team were warmly received and spent a few hours being shown around.

A spokesperson for NCI Calshot said “Today saw a number of us visit DP World at Southampton Docks. The operation is quite literally awesome and unlike a lot of other ports, manually operated. Too many facts and figures to quote but we are all consumers of their cargo. Many thanks to our host and guide Ian for a very informative few hours and we look forward to welcoming you to our tower to settle the ‘battle of the best work view’ competition!”
