Yarmouth Steam Drifter Lydia Eva “YH89"
The world's last surviving steam-powered herring drifter steamed back to Great Yarmouth for the first time, in many years, on Saturday 15th May 2010.
Steam drifters once filled the harbours as they worked down from Scotland following the Herring. Lydia Eva was, unusually, also capable of trawling outside the herring season.
Every summer she is open for visitors and this year is in Great Yarmouth.
Lowestoft Side Winder Trawler Mincarlo “LT412"
The last complete example of a Lowestoft sidewinder trawler Mincarlo is the last floating example which has engine and hull, both manufactured in Lowestoft.
Every summer she is open for visitors and this year is in Lowestoft.
