Without further support she can’t return to service in 2021. We are therefore asking for your help by donating to Waverley’s COVID-19 Relief Appeal.

Medway Queen – Update 28th October 2013


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.


The tug Christine arrived in Bristol about a fortnight ago in readiness to tow Medway Queen back to the Medway.

The necessary certificates to allow MQ to be towed must have now been issued, as she was towed out of the Albion Dock last Wednesday.  A short film of the move can be seen below or by clicking here.

They are now waiting for a good weather window before the tow can commence.

The PSPS Scottish Branch has a press release about the move, on their site. Bristol Channel branch member Geoff Hale has recently been aboard Medway Queen and has produced a six minute video of his visit – the film can be viewed below or here.
