Dunkirk Relic

Sad to see a historic boat in such a state, and getting worse every time I see her. She's the Skylark, and rescued around 600 from the beaches of Dunkirk in WW2. More info here - and you can buy her for just £1.

I actually (obviously erroneously!) thought she had been sold and was going to restored, but sadly not. She's currently sunk in the River Leven and is now breaking up, with her railings having come off since the last time I was there.

At least the ducks are making use of her. :-)
