Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mayflower is a steam tug built in Bristol in 1861 and now preserved by Bristol Museums Galleries & Archives. She is based in Bristol Harbour at M Shed. She is the oldest Bristol-built ship afloat and is believed to be the oldest surviving tug in the world. She was built by GK Stothert & Co, who were connected with the Bath-based engineering company Stothert & Pitt. A branch of the family came to Bristol to build railway locomotives. After 1852, a separate shipbuilding company was established which survived in business until the 1930s.show more
