An amazing Steam Drifter with an amazing story to tell. The only one left. So lovely that it has been preserved for the public to be able to enjoy its wonderful history. Staff on board very welcoming with a wealth of knowledge.

A floating museum, loved walking around this during the maritime festival. It is nice to get a look at what used ti be a huge industry for the area that is now all but gone sadly.

The Lydia Eva is the last steam drifter and is free to go on board. You are met by enthusiastic volunteers with a great deal of knowledge, and al, this is yours free of charge.

Very interesting visit. Lots of information about the last steam drifter and the herring fishing industry. Free entry but a donation helps to keep the boat afloat.
