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?

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.

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.


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.
