Callisto

P1000872

Callisto is an ex Grand Union motor boat, built by Harland & Wolff at Woolwich in 1935. Callisto is owned and operated by  Mark Rowland, who uses it to deliver coal and diesel around the midland canals under the Star Class Carrying banner. He loads from our yard once or twice a year, and reckons that he enjoys coming to Awbridge even though we force him to drink copious amounts of beer down “The Bell”.
