One of the world's only steam-powered narrowboats is due to leave Staffordshire later to take part in the Diamond Jubilee pageant.
The 71ft (22m) President will make a 336-mile journey to London over an expected three weeks.
The narrowboat will represent the county as part of a 1,000 strong flotilla on the River Thames on 3 June.
The boat, owned by the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, will be crewed by a team of volunteers.
