Turk’s Pontoon returns to Richmond


The Famous (and old) pontoon at Richmond riverfront has returned.

The pontoon was built in the 1950s for the Festival of Britain so is in the order of 70years old. The pontoon has been at Turk’s boatyards in Chatham for the last few months, and been refurbished and modified to better serve the floating barge/restaurant. The barge will return to Richmond sometime this year.

The pontoon is still being commissioned, and needs some finishing work and also needs the Brow refitting to allow access to the shore. We hope we can start using the pontoon for our boating activities sometime in the Spring.
