Launch of 2 Severn Skiffs
1st August 2010
At last a day fit to launch Miranda and Bridget who are both Severn Skiffs made by Coopers and Ellis's of Shrewsbury in 1912 and 1919 respectively.
Both spent their early lives as pleasure craft for hire in Shrewsbury until they came to The Isle in the 1930’s. Fully restored by the Boatman at Radley School on the Thames in 2007 they are for all to enjoy, doing what they do best.......messing around on the river.
