The Friends of the “Mary Gordon”

The Mary Gordon electric river boat is the oldest electrically powered craft still in existence. Having been saved many times from destruction, she is now being restored, to carry passengers on Britain’s oldest canal, the Fossdyke, in Lincoln.

A proposal for restoration has recently been made to the Heritage Lottery fund, the proposal can be read in full here, and there is also a summary available.

The Friends of the Mary Gordon are interested in any memories of trips in the boat and any stories and information about its history and construction. Please get in touch!
