Just been going through some old packs of photos and found a couple of Taygeta loading coal at Gunpowder Wharf, Kidlington on the S. Oxford in 1993. 

 

Anyone know the current owner, so I can send them scans?

Hi Andy, 

I'm sorry to say the last I heard of her she was on the bank being cut up, albeit quite carefully to make getting rid of the scrap pieces easier.

My memory has probably gone off on a weird tangent, but wasn't Taygeta  owned in the 80/90 by a strange vicar with a particular attitude against humanity?

I think Taygeta is at Brinklow at the moment.

Indeed - owned by an employee of Brinklow Boat Services who is restoring it in his spare time.  The “floating classroom” boat is the Tucana.

 

Taygeta AKA Severn Dolphin was on hire from BW to a iirc a David Thompson and was used in the coal trade later returning to maintenance in the NW.

Can I request that you post copies of the photos on here please ?

I'm sure that there are a lot of us who would be interested in seeing them.

Assuming of course that it is Taygeta.....either way, best thing for it I think. Some idiot's gone and drilled loads of holes in it so it'll never float anyway.

Pics as requested. Sad to hear she's (maybe?) no more - shame.
