MONUMENT NO. 60924

DESCRIPTION + /

Part of a logboat was found in the bank of the River Trent in 1903, at East Ferry. It is possible that it is part of a logboat found nearby in 1811 that was sold to a wheelwright to break up for use, if it was later discarded. The complete logboat was said to measure over 12 metres in length and 1.2 metres in width although it is not recorded what type of wood it was fashioned from or to what period it dated. Despite the fact the partial logboat was supposedly given to Scunthorpe Museum they have no record of the accession and its whereabouts are now unknown.
