The Royal Barge in the Boathouse, Worsley

The Royal Barge in the Boathouse, Worsley

Back to table of results
T1657. Queen Victoria visited the Worsley in October 1851, staying at Worsley New Hall, home of the Earl of Ellesmere. The Earl had a barge specially constructed for the visit, which became known as the Royal Barge. As is evident from this photograph, it was an elegant craft, and was stored in a boat house in Worsley, a building that still exists today.
