MY Raven glides down Ullswater by Airaforce Pier

  • Description

    "This historic vessel is no better described than on the website of Ullswater Steamers; "Launched on the 16th July 1889, her arrival was directly inspired by the tour operator Thomas Cook who voiced his concerns to the Directors about the need for a second vessel during the peak holiday season. She was named after Ravencragg, home of Company Director W.H Parkin and christened by Miss Winifred Parkin, aged 6, in the customary manner of breaking a bottle of champagne against the bows as the vessel was gliding down the stays into the water.""
