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

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.
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
The reflections of the boat make this photo look so so beautiful..excellent word my friend!!
Many kisses my friend!
