Originally paired with butty no 255, Cleopatra.

1959: chopped in two at Bulls Bridge.  The fore end half became the 45ft BW hire cruiser Water Lilac, now named Antony/Water Lilac (BW Index No 68534) and is believed to be still composite. 

The stern was not used by BW, eventually being sold to Willow Wren.

1964: Willow Wren converted the stern into a 46ft 6ins cruiser Plover, later renamed Little Plover, now reverted to the original name Antony (BW Index No 62022).
