Kingswear Castle on the Dart – December 2012

Kingswear Castle was towed from the Medway on 11 December by the tug Christine, she reached Portland the following day and had to seek shelter until 18 December before finally arriving on the Dart. Her first public cruise is scheduled for Friday 29 March (Good Friday) when she will offer a cruise from Dartmouth with all proceeds being given to the PSPS.

Chris Jones visited the Dart on Sunday 30 December and has kindly supplied the following pictures he took of her at rest awaiting the start of her new life on the river she was built to serve.

More pictures of Kingswear Castle can be found at Chris’s blog site here.
