ILCHESTER, much modified, in Liverpool on 22/6/2013. Her intended use was for diving support off Holyhead but that may not have happened. She has been at Liverpool for a few years under repair.

launched by Gregsons in 1974, one of 4 Clovelly Class fleet tenders fitted as diving tenders. Sold in 3/2004 to H-PAC Services.

George, I believe she was in the next dock (closer to the Pier Head) from the one most of the Svitzer tugs are berthed in (which is Bramley Moore I think). So that would make it Nelson Dock.
