The Shamrock, Cotehele Quay
The Shamrock, Cotehele Quay
Built in 1899, the Shamrock was primarily a river cargo boat carrying manure, coal, limestone and building materials up the Rivers Tamar and Lyner. By the 1930s she was carrying goods along the Cornwall and Devon coast. After becoming a diving tender in the late 1960s she ended up in a semi derelict state in Hooe Lake near Plymouth. In 1974 the National Trust came to the rescue and brought her to Cothele. By 1979 the restoration work was completed and in 1982 she sailed on the river again. She is the last fully restored Tamar barge in existence.
