    Given the height of the stack when the barges were loaded to capacity, a ladder was often rigged at either end to enable the mate to clamber over the hull if required. However, the difficulties in handling a deep-laden vessel under these conditions were considerable, not least when the barges were beating up the crowded Thames or approaching their berths in the city in order to unload. A good passage from an Essex [hay] farm into London usually took twenty-four hours although there was often much time wasted at anchor waiting for the tide.
