This Old Boat?
The small publication Barking & Dagenham Post reported on 1 March that an antique single scull had been found in Barking Park's boating shed in East London. The park is getting a £3.2 million refurbishment, and the wooden boat, which could have been in the boat shed since the opening of the park in 1898, has been examined by staff from the Henley River and Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames.
