EMAS FIELD TRIP TO SS GREAT BRITAIN AND THE MATTHEW, BRISTOL

SATURDAY, 17th MARCH 2018 – WITH DR CHRIS WARE

Once again, we are very fortunate that Dr Chris Ware will accompany us to Bristol when we explore two very different vessels, the SS Great Britain and The Matthew.

Some of you may remember seeing the hulk of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s SS Great Britain being towed into Bristol’s Great Western Dockyard in 1970, some 127 years since she was launched by Prince Albert from the very same dockyard, where of course she was built.  Now she has been painstakingly restored to her former glory as a transatlantic passenger ship.
