Five years ago we were in the early morning passing through London after a coach tour of Italy, and an almighty red glow was in the sky.
Arriving home was shocked to see the red glow was Cutty Sark burning.
The times we had meant to visit her and see the inside of the ship, but the times we were in Greenwich the ship was usual closing. Now she is open to the public again after the Olympics and the Queens Jubilee we are going to visit the ship.
Today the Queen visited the newly restored ship:
The History of this famous ship can be found on its official website.
My pictures include a view of the ship before the fire, on fire, and in her glory days cruising between the UK and Australia.
