Shipping notes No. 230 (May).

Bideford Quay.

Friday 31st the Town welcomed the paddle steamer Waverley for the first time since the 1980’s. Everybody I spoke to could not remember the last time the vessel was in the port. She berthed about 12.40 and sailed for Ilfracombe approx 13.50. (Photo below).

Let’s hope she does not stay away for 40 years again!

 

Yelland Quay.

No shipping since last issue.

 

Appledore.

Quorn and Atherstone still at shipyard.
