Ships and Shipbuilding on the River Otter

Price: £3.00

Stock: 10 available

This publication by local historian Roz Hickman uncovers a long-forgotten aspect of Otterton and the River Otter. It is difficult in the 21st Century to imagine the River Otter estuary as a sizeable harbour with wharfs, a shipbuilding industry, and a river navigable as far as Otterton. The Duke of Buckingham’s survey of 1619 recorded twenty-one shipwrights living in Otterton, making Ottermouth the third largest shipbuilding port on the south coast of Devon after Dartmouth and Plymouth.
