Shipping[edit | edit source]

  • The British Mercantile Marine and Fishing Fleets: c.1835 - c.1972 with reference to the Seagoing Naval Reserves by Len Barnett.
  • Fishing Boat Heritage We have a rich heritage in our communities, families and boats which have committed to the UK fishing industry over the past 150 years. Significant records and recollections of the people and their boats exist today. Fishing Boat Heritage has been created to provide a single easily accessed archive before much of this is lost forever.
