Britain is an island nation whose history has in no small part been influenced by the maritime activities - both war and commerce - around our shores, and globally, over two millennia. Interest in the rich physical heritage of our maritime past, including historic ships, boats, dockyards, coastal and sea fortifications and maritime museums has increased over the past forty years. These sites now attract large numbers of visitors for leisure and educational activities, while their restoration, preservation and exhibition provides employment, sometimes in a voluntary capacity, for many others.
This book is concerned with what is probably the most fragile part of this heritage - the surviving historic ships that are scattered around the ports and harbours of our coastline. Many of these ships have survived by happenstance, escaping the breaker's yard while languishing in some lowly harbour role. Others had unusually long operational lives that allowed them to survive into a period when the restoration and preservation of historic ships became more common. A few were deliberately retained because, even before the wider emergence of concern for our heritage, their historical importance was recognised by at least a small group of active campaigners.
