I am interested in finding out what happened to the small sludge carrier COUNTESS WEAR, built in 1963 by J Bolson of Poole as the S.W.2.  She worked out of the Exeter Ship Canal for many years until international restriction prevented her use for distributing processesd sludge in Lyme Bay.  Equasis records her as the COUNTESS, 5417507, but with little further information.  She used to be visible from the M5 Exe bridge when alongside the processing plant.

I believe that she went from the Exeter Canal to the River Dart for layup, but have no further information.

Many thanks,

FYI: the S.W in S.W.2 stood for Sewage Works, S.W.1 being a lorry used on the site.

Many thanks for the info, she must have had an interesting voyage - assuming she made it under her own 'steam'.

Best regards

Tom
