The Medway Eco-Barge that featured on an episode of Channel 4’s Grand Designs a number of years ago has lain dormant moored in the Ray Gut waterway off Leigh-on-Sea for the last four or five years, slowly deteriorating and falling in to a state of dereliction.The house boat was refused permission to become the permanent home of the couple who designed it so it has just sat empty ever since. A FLOATING home made famous after being featured on a television programme appears to be rotting away on a mooring off the coast of Leigh. East London couple Chris Miller and Sze Liu Lai decided to build the ?80,000 houseboat to give them more space for their young family for a fraction of the price of a home on land.
But after almost three years riding the estuary’s tides the distinctive barge, which is made of recycled and reclaimed materials, is looking worse for wear. Paul Hopkins, 51, spotted the dilapidated state of the barge after he travelled to Leigh from his home in Hertforshire for a day’s kayaking in the estuary with friends.
He said: “One of the lads spotted it when we were paddling down to Leigh and we went over to investigate it. Southend Council’s resort services manager Lynn Jones said the council had no valid reason to remove the barge from its present mooring.

Can housing associations force the Conservative Party into a rethink on extending the right to buy? A boat covered in graffiti and with broken windows stunned onlookers as it washed up on a beach at Westcliff-on-Sea in Essex on Monday. The 33m (100ft) vessel, which had broken free from its mooring along the coast, has earned some belated notoriety after featuring in an edition of the Channel 4 property programme in March 2007. It proved something of a disaster for east London couple Christopher Miller and his wife Sze Liu Lai. The social workers wanted somewhere they could go with their children Alexion and Tayszea that had more room than their flat in Wanstead, east London.
It had been left moored and uninhabited in the Thames Estuary for the past three and a half years and it is not known if they still own it. If you have a complaint about the editorial content which relates to inaccuracy or intrusion, then please contact the editor here.
One of them was my way - which was the best way - that involved a process called design, you know, pencils and pieces of paper - that kind thing.


The boat, the Medway Eco-Barge, which was built from reclaimed timber and corrugated iron, was left unfinished. Then I saw the roof and realised it was the boat from Grand Designs – it looked very strange just sat there opposite our cafe.
And the other was Chris' way which involved a process called chance."I never thought his method would prevail but the results are OK. In fact, and I surprise myself saying this, there is a faint glimmer of a chance that one day this houseboat will be, well, nearly beautiful."Sadly not.
