PS Ryde at Binfield.2 viewsThe sad sight of the rusting remains of the ex Southern Railway & British Railways paddle steamer, 'Ryde' in July 2010.
Built for the Portsmouth-Ryde Pier Head service, Ryde was one of a long line of ships built by Denny of Dumbarton. Ryde dated from 1937, and was in service until 1969.
