It’s been a while since I visited the Duke to see what DuDug have done to him. So far on the port side they have only added two pieces of artwork. The starboard side however has more and I will be writing about them in a later post. Be sure to look out for it because there are some amazing pieces of artwork painted on the side of the ship.
For new readers who have not seen my earlier posts about the Duke, here’s some background info. The Duke of Lancaster is a railway steamer passenger ship that operated in Europe from 1956 to 1979, and is currently beached near Mostyn Docks, on the River Dee, north-east Wales. It was intended to be used as a static leisure centre and market but because public access to the ship is via a bridge under the North Wales railway line, which is too low for emergency vehicles. it had to close.
