Wardleys Creek, Hambleton, Lancs, on the River Wyre, has a Georgian quayside in remarkably good condition.
There are roman numerals down one side of the quayside, the lowest one showing an ''X'' which tells you something about the silting.

Just come across this site and, as one who has long had a fascination for quaysides, can see before viewing more fully that I am going to get lots of enjoyment from it.
I do have a question though: in John Rowe Townsend''s book The Intruder is an illustration of a port and quayside (inside front cover) which I was told by the illustrator was a fictional drawing based on the setting of the story, which is in Ravenglass, Cumbria.
The illustration does have the slightest resemblance to Ravenglass and a hint here and there of Arnside, Cumbria.
If anyone can help here, and I am happy to submit an image, I would like to hear views on where people think it most resembles.

I just wanted to say this website is extremely useful. I had to locate every port in the east and south of england and this website has done the work for me, all I had to do was write them all down. I am very grateful for this website and we would like to thank everyone who keeps the information up to date.

Just want to say hello to all of you in Ullapool. I have been there in 1985 as one of the so called klondikers on a east German Super Trawler. I can still remember on the smell and the taste of the whiskey in Captains Cabin. Now after this huge fleet of ships is gone I hope you will still have a good business there and hopefully I will come again to enjoy the harbor view by sunset.
BTW: I still have some pictures from this time. I want to share them and if you are interested to put them on your page you are welcome to contact me.

Peter (see below) - look at the Stroma page at www.ports.org.uk/port.asp?id=544. You''ll see in the final paragraph details of how to get to the island.

My forbears were the Kennedys who owned Stroma from about 1659 till 1721 when they moved to Braehead on South Ronaldsay. One colourful character Murdoch was said to have entertained guests by using the mummified corpses of his father & grandfather as drums. I believe there is a Kennedy mausoleum in the graveyard and think I recognised it on a photo on the internet?
This year some family members descended from the Kennedies are hoping to visit. Perhaps 6 adults or perhaps 8. Would it be possible to arrange a boat trip?
Dates to be decided. Where would we depart from?

Following on Mike''s comment below, if ''usage'' includes Leisure, then you can assume that yachts are welcome. Many commercial ports do have facilities for leisure craft, of course.
Alternatively, you can go to Advanced Search. If, for example, you ask for ''Leisure'' (under Usage) in ''England'', you get 160 locations.

This site is simply brilliant! The only thing I would add is to clarify the ports that welcome visiting small yachts. Some mainly commercial ports don''t at all. Some do. It''s not meant to be a pilot book of course but I find it difficult to know if Yachts are welcome.

My compliment to the designer,
It would be better to sort the port according to their useage commercial eg container, fuel, ro-ro, general cargo, bulk ect. that will be more comfortable to find the best port for transschipment.
The photos were excellent.
My best regards to every one.

The photo of the of the Ardnadam Pier, even in its current dilapidated state brings back many memories.
In 1984, I spent eight months attached to the Clyde Area Shore Patrol, assigned the duties of Beach Guard at the end of the Ardnadam Pier.
We worked with the Ministry of Defense Police. The MODP were true professionals and great friends.
