Medway Queen Back on the Medway

Medway Queen has arrived safely back on on the River Medway.

With a weather forecast for three or four days of light mainly northerly winds, she left Avonmouth under tow of the tug Christine on Friday 15th November, arriving on the Medway on 18th. On 19th she was moved alongside Gillingham Pier, where restoration work will continue.

Pete Devrell recorded MQ passing Battery Point. Below are some of the still photos he took, he also shot some video footage that can be viewed here.
