AdnamsGirl Posted December 29, 2008 Share Posted December 29, 2008 The Lord Roberts was indeed given to the Norfolk Wherry Trust in 1969 by May Gurney and, as you say, they didn't have the funds to carry out the restoration. She was moored at Womack (in Hunters Dyke or nearby I believe) and later sunk. She was raised c1983 and was then taken off to Royall's yard and, as far as I know, now lies sunk in a private dyke somewhere in Wroxham. Whether there is enough of it left to be able to salvage and restore I don't know. The picture below comes from a newspaper article c1983 when she was raised and taken to Wroxham.
