Helen Doe, Tales of the Maritime Heritage of Cornwall
In Cornwall this was a time when it was quicker and easier to travel by sea than by land, when smuggling was still active and when small fast wooden sailing ships were built in great numbers to sail the oceans. When the smuggling trade declined, ships were built for the coastal trades of china clay and coal and the deep sea trades, importing dried cod from Newfoundland and pineapples and oranges from the Bahamas and the Azores.

On this site, you will find an introduction to some of this history. A book about the only woman shipbuilder in Cornwall, a list of the 19th century shipbuilders active in the Fowey and Mevagissey area, links to other useful sites, a booklist for further information, and a list of illustrated talks.
