River Brue, Highbridge

Highbridge Hulks

I was delighted to find these two decaying hulks on the banks of the river Brue near Highbridge. I don't know how long they've been there for but it's obviously been quite some time. I'm interested to know the history behind them; who owns or owned them, what were they used for and why were they left to rot?
