Edmund Gardner – last chance to see

25 August 2006 by Sam

Edmund Gardner pilot ship in front of the Maritime Museum

If you are down at the Pier Head for the Mathew Street Festival this weekend, why not pop over to the dockside and visit the largest object in National Museums Liverpool’s collections – the Edmund Gardner pilot cutter.

The ship is normally open to the public every summer. However, after it closes on 31 August 2006 some major construction works are due to start in the dockside area. The area will not be open again to the public until the work has finished, which is expected to take a few years. So this is your last chance to step onboard this piece of Liverpool history for quite some time. Don’t miss the boat!
