The Duke of Lancaster Ship, Mostyn
The TSS Duke of Lancaster is a railway steamer passenger ship that operated in Europe from 1956-1979. Upon her retirement she was put into a dry dock at Mostyn where she has lain ever since. Despite being covered in rust the interior of the ship is in good condition and was featured in 2011 on BBC2’s series of Coast. In 2012 graffiti artists spray-painted designs on the ship, to turn her into a floating graffiti gallery. The ship can be reached from Greenfield dock, or off the A548 Flint-Prestatyn coast road near the old market and Abakhan. tel: 029 2077 7777 address: A548 Flint to Prestatyn road, Hollywell.
