HMS WILTON, Minehunter, built Vosper Thorneycroft 1972, payed off 1994, sold 2001, towed to Southampton for conversion as yacht club for Leigh on Sea on River Orwell.

Small correction, Leigh on Sea is on the River Thames just upriver from Southend (easy walking distance from Southend sea front).

Sorry for the confusion, the extract should have read:
Leigh on Sea OR River Orwell.
No info on the conversion cost.
