The Incredible Journey
The SS Great Britain, Brunel's only surviving ship, was saved from disintegration by a daring salvage from the Falkland Islands in 1970. This book is the official history of the Trust and tells the story of the Great Britain in the 40 years since her return to her original dock in Bristol.
The story is not only about the ship herself, and her extraordinary transformation from a decaying hulk into one of the world's great maritime heritage sites, but is also about the vision for the ship and the people who made it possible.
This book, commissioned by the Trust, is Captain Chris Young's tribute to the ship and organisation that were part of his life, as employee and trustee, for 21 years.
