Would she have been in St Katherine's Dock in the early 1990s?

Yes.

She was restored in a floating dry dock at Faversham. Before that she was at the now defunct Dolphin Barge Museum at Sittingbourne.

I went on the Cambria as a kid many years ago when she was at Rochester. Think she was moved to St Katherines Dock not long afterwards. As an aside, I know the guy that made the rigging.

Thanks, SheppyBottles. Always nice to see one of these come back to life.

Here are a couple from last weekend when we had a walk down that way (Faversham), not that good but hope they will do for now...
