A west country trading ship built in 1904, Bessie Ellen visited Fowey while we were there. Built in Plymouth in 1904 she has had a remarkable working life and is currently part of the UK core collection of historic vessels sailing with charter crews around the UK and Europe.
She was a majestic sight making way slowly up the harbour, just the sort of vessel which would have visited Fowey a hundred years ago.
Everything seemed very relaxed and the crew all seemed to be well practiced.
Heading for the visitors pontoon.
