Lady Wakefield was built in 1949 in Dartmouth and was then called Berry Castle, later Golden Cormorant and later still Totnes Castle and that is where she spent her early life working between Dartmouth and Plymouth. She was brought up to Ullswater and renamed as Lady Wakefield in 2007

Anyway ~~~ I'm really glad you like this image too Steve. All the very best to you and Lady Wakefield, peep peep nick

Hi Nick! Super this boat, I would take it because there are no waves on the lake! It seems new, despite its age. This is a great lady, the boat.

Cheers,

Bernard

Bernard Bost ~~ All aboard the "Lady Wakefield" it is then Bernard and soon we set sail up the lake to Pooley Bridge. Don't be fooled by the smoothness of the lake now though ~ if a strong wind gets up ~ blowing up or down the length of the lake then waves will build up.

All the very best to you Bernard from nick
