Summary[edit]

Description
English: "Amy Howson", Barton Haven, Barton-upon-Humber, Lincolnshire, England.
The preserved Humber sloop "Amy Howson" lying in Barton Haven with the Humber bridge in the background. She is the only surviving Humber sloop, built in Beverley in 1904 as a keel and christened 'Sophia'. In 1916 she was re-rigged as a sloop to transport goods between Hull and Grimsby with a change of name to 'I know'. In 1922 William Henry Barraclough of Barton on Humber acquired her re-named her again after his daughter 'Amy Howson'. After a working career, she was left to rot moored up on the River Hull until rescued in 1976 by the Humber Keel and Sloop Preservation Society. The Amy Howson had the honour of being the first vessel to sail under the Humber Bridge on its opening day on 17th July 1981. She now makes regular cruises on Humber, Ancholme and Trent, retiring to Barton Haven during the winter months.
