The harbour of West Bay no longer shows any visible signs of its shipbuilding past. However during the period 1769-1879 over 350 ships were built here. We will be bringing the shipyard back to life and discovering some of its secrets in this anniversary year.
In association with Bridport Museum we are delighted to be part of the Turner in Bridport events that are taking place during the summer. Further details :https://bridportandwestbay.co.uk/gd-info/j-m-w-turner-comes-to-bridport/programme-of-events/
