Some serious anorak material coming up if anyone is interested.

LATEST NEWS RELEASE


Mon 7 and Tues 8 August: plans for a Windermere steamer and a Coniston based screenplay with Anthony Hopkins up for auction

Technical plans for an iconic Windermere steamer, twice visited by Her Majesty the Queen, are up for auction on Monday 7 August on the Cumbria, Lancashire border.

The two original dyeline prints, stamped with the shipbuilders name ‘Vickers Armstrong’ and showing the electrics and motor of the Teal, are expected to make between £150 and £200 despite their worn condition.

Valuer David Brookes, says the TEAL was built in the 1930s for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway as part of a plan to update and improve their Windermere cruise fleet. He says the prints would have informed the Teal’s maintenance and repair programme, an exact record of her workings, and remain an important part of her history.

Mr Brookes said: “The Teal was built by Vickers Armstrong at Barrow-in-Furness and transported in sections by rail and then reassembled at Lakeside. Records tell us she was launched on 4 July 1936 and 20 years later Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were passengers. In July 2013 the Queen, accompanied by Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal, was back on board for a second time.

The vendor spotted the prints for sale on the website ‘Sell and Seek’ and paid under £50 for the pair. One print, 12.5” x 43” and dated 19 May 1936, shows the ‘General Arrangement of Twin Screw Motor Vessel, Paint Line’. A second print, 29” x 43” with a later date of 1 May 1938, shows the ‘Arrangement of Electrical Installation’.

The Teal continues to carry passengers up and down the Lake as part of the fleet operated by Windermere Lake Cruises.

Also included in 1818 Auctioneers two day sale in August is another item with a local link, an original typewritten A4 Screenplay for the 1988 film ‘Across the Lake’. The film starred Anthony Hopkins as Donald Campbell on his ill-fated attempt for the water speed record on Coniston Water in 1967.

David Brookes says it was given to the vendor by the producer’s assistant whilst the crew were staying at Bank Ground Farm, Coniston during filming. The 98 page script has an estimate of... :D
