Some serious anorak material coming up if anyone is interested.

LATEST NEWS RELEASE


Mon 7 and Tues 8 August: plans for a Windermere steamer and a Coniston based screenplay with Anthony Hopkins up for auction

Technical plans for an iconic Windermere steamer, twice visited by Her Majesty the Queen, are up for auction on Monday 7 August on the Cumbria, Lancashire border.

The two original dyeline prints, stamped with the shipbuilders name ‘Vickers Armstrong’ and showing the electrics and motor of the Teal, are expected to make between £150 and £200 despite their worn condition.

Valuer David Brookes, says the TEAL was built in the 1930s for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway as part of a plan to update and improve their Windermere cruise fleet. He says the prints would have informed the Teal’s maintenance and repair programme, an exact record of her workings, and remain an important part of her history.

Mr Brookes said: “The Teal was built by Vickers Armstrong at Barrow-in-Furness and transported in sections by rail and then reassembled at Lakeside. Records tell us she was launched on 4 July 1936 and 20 years later Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were passengers. In July 2013 the Queen, accompanied by Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal, was back on board for a second time.

The vendor spotted the prints for sale on the website ‘Sell and Seek’ and paid under £50 for the pair. One print, 12.5” x 43” and dated 19 May 1936, shows the ‘General Arrangement of Twin Screw Motor Vessel, Paint Line’. A second print, 29” x 43” with a later date of 1 May 1938, shows the ‘Arrangement of Electrical Installation’.

The Teal continues to carry passengers up and down the Lake as part of the fleet operated by Windermere Lake Cruises.

Also included in 1818 Auctioneers two day sale in August is another item with a local link, an original typewritten A4 Screenplay for the 1988 film ‘Across the Lake’. The film starred Anthony Hopkins as Donald Campbell on his ill-fated attempt for the water speed record on Coniston Water in 1967.

David Brookes says it was given to the vendor by the producer’s assistant whilst the crew were staying at Bank Ground Farm, Coniston during filming. The 98 page script has an estimate of... :D

Hate to spoil your fun guys we did all this back in January during the 50th Anniversary didn't we Mr. Evans ;)
No need to bid as if you want copies of the ATL script I have it all and more. Word for word and all the different locations used during filming etc etc . Heck I even have access to how much the taxi was when Sir A. Hopkins left for London with his daughter having finished filming. Well he had the director suddenly wanted another shot of him fully masked sat in the cockpit with those eyes starring back out at you which we all see in the film. However it wasn't A.Hopkins eyes starring back at you but a certain Mr. Roger Mallinson who can still be seen traveling around locally on sunny days with his Alsatian sat proudly in the passenger seat of his vintage car.The B.B.C paid the bill of course to Browns Luxurious coaches of Ambleside who later became Browns Taxis who did the journey from Coniston to London but for confidential reasons i cannot disclose how many shillings it cost at this time :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Indeed we did, Mr Dzinora!

Having gatecrashed the first week's filming of ATL back in 1988 it was nice to be able give an insight into the production back in January as part of the 50th anniversary commemorations and even I learnt a thing or two when researching and revisiting some of the locations used. The Speed Record Club was also able to reunite Robbie Robinson and Mark Stratton who played Robbie in the film who, together with Gina, took part in a behind the scenes presentation on the film. In addition I was able to make contact with a number of the cast who also provided comments based on their experiences around Coniston. Now somewhere I have a copy of the filming schedule signed by AH, wonder what that might be worth?

And Roger Mallinson is quite a character in his own right, well worth a google, in his childhood he was around Sir Malcolm Campbell and later on knew Donald.

Happy days and appreciated the help, Novie!

Phil
