Way back in 1979, a former Sealink passenger ferry called the "Duke of Lancaster" was beached in North Wales with the intention of turning it into a floating leisure and retail complex.
The project never seemed to get of the ground and as such the ship has been on the banks of the River Dee Llanerch-y-Mor, near Mostyn.
Built in 1956 she was designed to operate as both a passenger ferry (primarily on the Heysham to Belfast route) and as a cruise ship. mainly around Scotland and was one of the finest vessels of this type in it's time. However car carrying on ferries became more and more important and, although converted to a car ferry she lasted a few short years until sold off in 1979.
