Lee. I have just noticed, your title is incorrect and needs altering to NORTHERN STAR, I hope you don't mind me pointing this out as it makes an excellent photo difficult to find when searching the name.

She was purpose built in Norway to carry bulk liquid chlorine from ICI Castner Kellner Wks, Weston Point,Runcorn, Cheshire,UK. to Duponts, Londonderry, NI. Her dimensions were specific to allow her to lock from the Manchester Ship Canal into the Weaver Navigation to load the product at ICI.
