HMS Pickle is a recreation of the schooner that delivered the news of Napoleon's defeat at the Battle of Trafalgar and the death of Nelson. This stunning boat will be moored on the Harbour Master's Pontoon in Lymington on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 July, as part of the weekend of Cornwallis Remembered commemorations.

You are invited on board Pickle between 10-12 and 2-4 to explore this marvellous vessel and learn about her adventures at sea from the crew, who will be dressed in full costume including their commanding officer, Lieutenant Laponetiere. Between 12-2- once the crew have enjoyed their ship's biscuits - they will re-enact a moment in history... maybe raise the sails or even set off a cannon or two!

Pickle is the pride and joy of Mal Nicholson and his wife Val. "Preserving and sharing history is what we stand for and the best way for us to do that is by letting people see and touch it for themselves." Their work on Pickle has been described by a Royal Navy historian as "the nearest this world is ever likely to have to the original."

For more information on HMS Pickle and Royal Navy Patrol ship HMS Trumpeter who will also be moored on Lymington Quay visit the news page on the St Barbe website. 

During her stay HMS Pickle will be moored on the Harbour Master/Lymington Town Sailing Club Pontoon.

Cannon fire demonstrations may take place between Thursday 4th July and Sunday 7th July inclusive.
