PS/TSS Duchess of Sutherland was a paddle steamer cargo vessel operated by the London and North Western Railway from 1868 to 1908.[1]

History[edit]

She was built by A. Leslie and Company for the London and North Western Railway in 1868.

On 8 September 1875, she collided with the paddle steamer Edith in Holyhead which resulted in the sinking of Edith.

She was converted from a paddle steamer to a twin screw steamer in 1888 by Cammell Laird of Birkenhead.
