Back in July 2012 I posted about a vessel I came across in Milford Haven harbour. My old pirate radio friend Walter Simons and I had wondered if it could be converted to an offshore radio ship. At the time the Monkleigh was up for sale and we gave a bit of thought to making an enquiry about her.
Sadly the vessel has now left Milford Haven and is presently at the Richmond breakers yard in Appledore in North Devon.
I am indebted to Robert J. Smith from the www.shipsnostalgia.com website who has kindly allowed me to use his photos below of the vessel in her final days at Milford Haven.
There is further information and photos of the Monkleigh to be found on the Bideford Buzz website here
