SS Robin takes a trip


The SS Robin has been moored in the Royal Victoria Dock, alongside the Millennium Mills site in Silvertown, for quite a few years now but she has spent the last week temporarily moored in Pontoon Dock whilst some other activity was taking place at the Millennium Mills.

Today was the day for her to return to her original mooring and CPBS Marine Services provided Maddog and Bulldog to assist.

The blustery conditions made the tow slightly tricky but CPBS Marine returned the SS Robin safely to her moorings and assisted to make her secure.
