New boat commissioned!

Boy Lukie under way.

Our new boat named Boy Lukie entered service recently. It is named in memory of Leslie Osborne who died when the first Renown was blown up at Dunkirk. This boat is used for fishing, cockling and shrimping.

Based in the fishing town of Old Leigh, Osborne Bros is a family run business located on the shores of the Thames Estuary.

The café is housed in the heart of the Old Town in an 18th century stable mews which was used to house horses and carriages delivering ale to the local public house – The Crooked Billet. The cockle sheds and smoke house are located along Cockle Shed row, which remains largely unchanged since being built in the 19th century.
