NUMBER 10, a cargo barge, was built in 1958 to work as a coal carrying vessel for Hargreaves. She worked in this capacity until the late 1980s. In 2009, she was bought as a dumb barge with no steering, engine, gearbox, roof or wheelhouse. Since then, NUMBER 10 has undergone significant restoration work.
