The last major incident, you may like to know, was the Burgundia, which struck the left pier you see below as it was leaving the Bann in 1981 and was carried onto Castlerock beach. It was towed away for scrap a few weeks later. What's that - it's cargo? Ah come on now - you're pulling my leg. Potatoes, of course...

Turn the other way and you see this - the wide expanse of the river just before it enters the Atlantic Ocean. Horrible snap, I know - but sometimes it happens, y'know.
