This is a trailer – the premier showing of the complete film The Restoration of Centaur will be at Maldon town hall at 7pm on the 7th March 2015.
Centaur is a Thames sailing barge built in 1895, and now owned and operated by the Thames Sailing Barge Trust.
PS – And dig this too…
This gallery of aerial photos of Thames sailing barges from the 1940s is an interesting document – not least because it shows clearly how far barges in those days would travel, as can be seen from the shot of Kingston upon Hull and the photo of three barges moored near Cowes.
By the way, the sparkling barge shot is of Repertor.
My thanks to the Thames Sailing Barge Trust for spotting this one.
