On the Barge at Last

Supporting the preservation and operation of paddle steamers Waverley and Kingswear Castle

The first shows the ship in position over the barge when it had been sunk prior to lifting.
The second is an infra-red shot when the barge was coming clear of the water.
Detail from the second shot.

The photographs below are by Brian Reade and show the initial barge operation, the sinking and Waverley being moved over it. Unfortunately the light conditions were not sufficient to enable recording of the barge lift.

The time lapse photography of Waverley’s lift out of the water did not happen due to the operation starting in low light and being completed in darkness. We do hope to have the re-floating operation captured though.
