Steamship Shieldhall In Dry Dock

The Steamship Shieldhall is the largest working steamship in Britain with a very interesting history including have once been a ‘Clyde sludge boat’ transporting treated sewage through Scotland’s waterways and dumping it sea. She is now a leisure craft based in Southampton. 

I captured this scene whilst she was in for routine maintenance at a dry dock in Falmouth.
