I don't understand why they don't transport these by sea.

This really is a rather inconvenient arrangement isn't it, having two sites and having to move all the enormous stuff between them by road.

Having been held up by one of these recently why on earth isn't there a law restricting wide load movements to overnight 7pm - 7am only. Moving the drafted static caravans equally a problem when two meet going in opposite directions and can't pass! Had that near Red Post recently.

I meant by sea as cargo on a barge or suitable ship.
