About The Swiftstone Trust...
To start with
the formal stuff...The Swiftstone Trust is a charity registered
in England & Wales.
Now on to the interesting stuff...
We are a remarkable assortment of people from all imaginable walks of life - lifelong rivermen - some Freemen of the River Thames, business people, retired people, firefighters, artists, musicians, architects & planners... we all have in common a love of the working Thames her History and her Future
We will own, preserve and operate the Thames Tug 'The Swiftstone' as a symbol of the heritage of the Thames and aims of the organisation. We are grateful to Cory Environmental for the donation of this unique vessel.
We will seek to inform and educate people today about the heritage and environment of the river Thames and the people who work on it.
The Swiftstone Trust will look to the future by promoting greater understanding of the Thames' history as a major route for passenger & commercial traffic and the lessons this may have for the future of the capitol.
We will develop activities and projects which further our aims and broaden awareness of the Thames, its history and potential (check the UPDATES page for news).
We are currently seeking permanent morrings and premises for both The Swiftstone and the Educational resource we are developing - a collection of unique objects, photos & documents illuminating the working heritage of the Thames.
