Artist's Description

Built in 1956 at the Harland and Wolff shipbuilders in Belfast, the Turbine Steam Ship, (TSS), Duke of Lancaster was initially a Railway Steamer operating between Heysham and Belfast. In the early 60’s she operated as a Cruise ship in and around European waters. In 1970, she was converted into a Car Ferry, once again between Heysham and Belfast. In 1978 she was decommissioned and dry docked at Barrow in Cumbria. She was later moved to be beached at the Port of Mostyn in North Wales and used as a ’ Fun Ship ’ and Casino and more recently used as a warehouse by her present owners.For the past few years the ship has become a very well known land mark to residents and travellers alike as they enter and leave North Wales. Despite the sad sight of her decaying exterior, I am led to believe that she is in excellent condition internally. She was featured in an episode of BBC 2’s series, coast in 2011.
