NORTHUMBRIAN FISHING HERITAGE TRUST

Registered Charity No - 1135295


Home Favourite Peggy Rachael Douglas Sovereign Links ?

  The coast of the North East of England from Berwick in the north to Whitby and beyond in the south, has an extremely rich maritime, historic and cultural heritage. From the age of sail and right up to the 1980's it was one of the principal shipbuilding areas in the UK, a main source of employment for seafarers and fishermen and a way of life for communities steeped in every type of maritime craft and enterprise.

The Trust was formed to make a positive contribution to the renewal of interest in traditional seagoing activities in the region.
The main emphasis is on the care, maintenance and restoration of wooden vessels.
