She entered service in 1893 and remained in general use until the early 1950's. In the mid-1950's she ended her commercial use. In 2004 she was purchased by the Canal and River Services. In 2004, her iron bottom was replaced with steel and her wooden cabins were replaced with steel ones. In 2004 her iron knees were replaced as necessary with steel ones.
