St Katherine’s Dock

St. K_1

From 1979 to ’86, St Katherine’s Dock in London was home to the Historic Ship Collection. It was closed after eight years “due to inadequate visitor revenue” and the small fleet was dispersed around Britain.

St.K_2

S.t. Challenge, the last steam tug to work on the Thames, was built in 1931 and took part in the evacuation of Dunkirk during WWII. The trawler, Lydia Eva (YH89) in the background is now based at Great Yarmouth.

St.K_3

The Nore lightship, sold into private ownership in the ’90s, was last seen many years ago as a rusting houseboat on the river Medway.
