Tattershall Castle back on the Thames

Staff WriterNews

THE paddlesteamer Tattershall Castle was back on the Thames today as her refit nears completion.

The famous old Humber ferry left her mooring at the embankment late in January and headed up to Hull for a refit.

She returned to the Thames today but is not yet ready to return to London – she has entered Tilbury docks where the remainder of her refurbishment will be completed.

With assistance from GPS Battler and Horton, Tattershall Castle arrived at Tilbury at about midday. It’s expected that the 80 year old paddlesteamer will remain there until the 12th April before heading up river to return to her mooring at the Victoria Embankment.
