A Picture with History

Part of the above photo has been used to introduce the website Photo Gallery. This photo was taken by the late David Hoskins in 2013 at the Drumshoreland Basin just south of Broxburn. Three St John Boats feature in the photo. On the left are the St John Crusader 11 and the St John Edinburgh. Berthed on the right is the original St John Crusader which was the first boat owned and operated by the Trust until 1996. The boat was then sold to a Community Group at Wester Hailes who in turn sold it to the Bridge 19 – 40 Union Canal Society in 2004. They renovated and renamed the boat Bluebell.
