The Black Pearl
In 2013 the 'Black Pearl' was launched on the beach at New Brighton.
She was built by local artists Frank Lund and Major Mace and is maintained by a small group of locals who have even had to help rebuild the ship twice; first when it was destroyed by Winter storms and again when it was set alight by yobs just six months later.
She has been a much loved ship to young and old alike, has seen many a budding pirate walk the plank and has encountered many storms.
Unfortunately one storm in March 2020 saw her ship-wrecked beyond repair.
As before there are plans afoot to rebuild her.
Watch this space.
