Last week Remark! Community organised a trip for Remarkable! Club to visit the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. We were very lucky to find a BSL tour of the ship. The tour was led by Deaf Historian John Wilson, who told us of its history from first being built in Scotland to all that’s happened since being put in the dry dock at Greenwich.
Although Cutty Sark started off as a ‘tea clipper’ collecting tea from China and bringing back to London, it was later used to collect wool from Australia and then sold to a company Portugal and renamed Ferreira. Later, it was bought back as a training ship and called Cutty Sark again, before being made into a museum as it is today!
Everyone had an absolutely fantastic time – thankfully Steven was in a good mood too! This meant that nobody had to walk the plank!
The tour was enjoyed by all, and we owe a big thanks to John Wilson for providing such an interesting and engaging tour!
