The 'Scone' in Whitstable

Scone from a canoe (6)
Ian Lipscomb

In June 1977 she was bought from Geoff Ward by Stephen Mallett, as a derelict and abandoned houseboat, and re-built and re-rigged.  Scone was put up for sale again in 1983 and was bought by G. Heald, a publican from Whitstable.  He sailed her briefly before turning her into a restaurant in London.  I was lucky to have worked for Geoff + Sue and helped do Champagne + Oyster events at our lovely Whitstable Harbour,  it was indeed a beautiful barge and they spent a lot of money on the interior, many happy memories of times gone by.

Thanks for adding this memoir – [Pam Bird Gaines – Editor]
