Medway Queen Leaves Bristol


This post has been migrated from the Branch blog that was in use between 2008 and 2013. Consequently, there may be minor visual irregularities in how this post is displayed.


On Thursday 31st October Medway Queen was towed out of the Albion Dock, through the floating harbour and down the River Avon to Avonmouth. She will wait there until there is a suitable weather window, to allow the tow proper to commence. October/November is not a good time for a decent weather window, as the recent storms have proved.

A number of videos of the move have appeared on YouTube, the one below is by Branch member Geoff Hale.
