Yahoo Map of Mulberry Harbour Prototype near to Garlieston

Visible offshore is a sunken prototype of one of the three types of Mulberry Harbour tested here during World War II. This is the "hippo" type - a floating concrete caisson with a steel superstructure.

Remains of a Mulberry Harbour Protoype (floating harbours used during the 2nd World War D-Day landings) pictured at an extremely low tide. The floating harbours were tested in this area of South Scotland as the tides rise and fall hugely like on the North of France. The structure collapsed during a storm on March 16th, 2006 making this probably the last image of it seen standing. The base concrete blocks are still visible at low tides.
