The brand new Starcross History group presents the iconic, Victorian, maritime folly, The Swan of the Exe. Captain George Peacock commissioned Dixons of Exmouth to build his luxurious white and gold  yacht in the form of a swan. She was moored at Starcross. She survived until the 1960s, but rises again to join T.R.A.I.L. to protest plastic pollution of the planet.  Today’s Swan is a scrapped, plastic dinghy. Her plumage  has been made from plastic milk bottles. She’s caught up in a fishing net, with examples of the billions of tons of plastic flotsam and jetsam which inexorably  accumulate in the deep ocean.
