Another Little Ship

Hidden away alongside the Sea Scout building in Old Leigh for some time, Caresana is now in the ownership of the Dunkirk Little Ships Restoration Trust and her future looks assured.

She was built as a lifeboat in 1933 by Groves and Gutteridge and based at Dungeness. She is said to have been our longest service lifeboat - called Charles Hooper Henderson during her RNLI days.
