WWII Mulberry Harbour Section

WWII Mulberry Harbour Section


Bognor Regis, United Kingdom (GB)
A concrete barge which should have been used as part of the floating roadway of the Mulberry harbour for the D Day landings. According to locals, this section came adrift before it could be towed to the Normandy coastline on the morning of 6th June 1944.

I don't think this is a Mulberry. Mulberry's were massive. Looking around there is what looks more like a partially sunken Mulberry just to the SW:

Here's what a Mulberry looks like above water:

Joe is correct. These are part of the harbour but not a Mulberry section:
