In the past, Glasson Dock has been used for ship breaking (and building) occasionally, so it may well be that Merger meets her end where she now lies.
I visited primarily to try out an ND filter, but found that the tide didn’t rise high enough for me to get the pictures I’d envisioned, but at least it’s not too far away for a reshoot the next time a higher tide is forecast.

The dredger MV Merger was broken up in situ in 2017 as recorded on the website link shown below. It was still active in 2014 but looked rather worse for wear.
