Regal Neighbour

One of our temporary neighbours whilst we enjoy our sojourn here at Great Haywood is the Fellows, Morton and Clayton (FMC) former steamer, Monarch.  This is the elder sister of President and was built in 1908.  The boiler was removed in 2005 and Monarch is now powered by a Lister JP2 engine. Monarch is currently paired with the butty, Grimsby see below.

these are truly the grand old dames of the cut and they are so lovely to look at.
