SS Freshspring is a unique, small coasting steamship representing vessels common from the 19th century. She is the last potentially operational example of these ships. Please help to support those excluded from our society and allow us to encourage young people into rewarding maritime careers. Young people visit the SS Freshspring and learn about engineering and the skills required to enter careers in the maritime sector. Your giving allows this vessel to be available and accessible as a valuable heritage resource. Thank you.
