Liverpool painting No. 81. Albert Dock and the Brocklebank


Watercolour 21cm x 14cm

Brocklebank escorted the Royal Yacht Britannia into the Mersey and pushed and pulled countless liners, warships freighters and tankers around the docks.

Following retirement in 1989, she is now the only seagoing vessel owned by a UK national museum.

Brocklebank sails around Britain’s coast as a floating ambassador for Merseyside Maritime Museum.

She is the last operational example of a traditional tug built for the Mersey.
