Tattershall Castle

We've had aeroplanes today, so here's a paddle steamer from our roving reporter Tom Hartley, who's visiting the capital and been taking a refreshment break on the Tattershall Castle, built by William Gray in 1934 at British West Hartlepool for the LNER

Those of you with a nautical inclination or a monkey fetish will be aware that Wingfield Castle, a sister ship of Tattershall Castle, is moored at the interesting Museum of Hartlepool   The third Humber paddler Lincoln Castle was recently scrapped.
