Bulstrode is a highly disagreeable barge who was beached at Tidmouth Beach as a children's playground.
Bulstrode was used to carry cargo like coal and stone, but always complained about not being loaded fast enough. This annoyed the trucks, but one day Bulstrode ended up getting what he deserved when Percy accidentally pushed trucks off the quay and into his hull. He was then towed to a beach, where he was turned into a children's playground. After many years as a children's playground he was given a second chance to be in th water again.
