The Pilgrim Preservation Project

This was a wonderful opportunity to tour the Pilgrim Preservation Project at Butler and Co, Old Mill Creek in Dartmouth.

Pilgrim is the last Brixham built, wooden trawler to have worked amongst the fleet of around 300 that operated out of Brixham in the 1900s. They are very rare and this is a unique opportunity to watch as she is restored and see her extraordinary construction.

An unmissable part of South Devon's Heritage, I urge you to look at their website and consider sponsoring a plank so that the project can reach completion and she can be back in Brixham for 2012. The team are always looking for volunteers and have ambitious plans for her future.
