The Paddle Steamer - 'Ryde Queen' at the Island Harbour Marina
Once, one of the Islands favorite night clubs she lays here today a very sad and pitiful sight following the early morning fire which completely destroyed her interior. Sadly, nothing has ever been done to restore her, she lies here rusting away.
This is also the same Mill Pond that once held the Medway Queen
before she was rescued and returned to Damhead Creek, on the Hoo peninsular’ by the River Medway. Todate (2006) some 20 years later the lack of funding is holding up restoration work.
