TATTERSHALL CASTLE (5353804), 556gt, completed Gray, W Hartlepool, 11-1934
hulked as a museum 4q.75 - now in service as a restaurant on the Thames Embankment in London
Nice of our coach driver to park right next to this Hartlepool-built survivor on 15 July 2013:

Even went on board ... if only to use the facilities before our coach left!

... but what a pity that her profile has been so changed! I suppose it has helped her to survive, though (what is left of her).

Poor quality I'm afraid but not an every day event so worth recording.
