Great site! We are planning a 5 month trip from Holland around the UK with our 24 Ft. sailing yacht this summer. This site is of great help!

Hello Bob, long time since we met. Hope you are well. I really enjoyed looking at the ports I used to visit,(I was stationed at Marchwood for a while).
Best wishes Keith Watson.

I am researching ports/ harbours & docks in the UK for a marine project for my company. This site is really useful.

As Rispond is the ancestoral home of my Gr Grandfather, I am inthralled by the prospects of actually seeing in person, not only the home where he lived for many years, but the country as well.

Great site, having lived at the Kingholm Quay for several years and owning a small boat which was also moored at the Quay, i was surprised recently when i visited the Kingholm to see a few large boats there, nice to see it being used.

This is a fantastic website, very informative and interesting. The sheer amount of information is very impressive though I don''t see mention of Whitehead Harbour, County Antrim. I am not refering to the slipway by the town''s carpark but of the orginal harbour with it''s distinctive white appearance. It is not easily accessible ( I walked along the railway line, bound to be an easier way) but does provide moorings for several boats. I''m sure it would be an interesting addition to this comprehensive list.
Thanks for all the effort you have made in providing this list!

An excellent site. There are also details of many of the small commercial ports in my book "Coasters around Britain", published in 1989 and now sadly out of print. An updated version is at the planning stage.

Partanhall is an absolutly beautiful place, i would recomend the view to anybody, the morning sun was a joy to wake up to, at low tide you can see the seals out on the rocks.

Bob Shires (bobshires@btinternet.com)

I only found this site after a chance email correspondence with Bob Jones, who I hoped might help me identify an old photograph. Bob was unable to recognise the place in question, but it was only then I followed the link on his email to this site and realised how many small ports and harbours there are. Brilliant site I expect to be a regular!

Keep the good work up

The Rowhedge ferry was still running in 1957.I lived at 19 Church hill till 1958 and as children we often used the ferry to get the train to Walton / Clacton beaches.Good to read about the old village. I wish there was more about Rowhedge Iron Works.

Excellent list with plenty of information which will be of great use to me in the Moray Firth sailing area.

Dave Snelson (dave.snelson@btconnect.com)

Great website. You may have to update my home harbour of Porthmadog as it it will soon have a small marina (pontoon berths with electricity & water) of its own!

Thanks for the obvious work that has gone into this.

Whilst it''s not possible on this website to see the volumes of cargo handled by ports, you can download the latest document (Focus on Ports 2006) from the Department for Transport at http://www.dft.gov.uk/stellent/groups/dft_transstats/documents/page/dft_transstats_611027.hcsp. This provides the sort of information you are probably looking for.

V.S.S.Sarma (vsssarma@gmail.com)

Nice work, my friend! Is there any way one can find out from the site - which are the biggest ports in terms of volume handled ? It will be nice to know if the data can be given in a descending order.

anna best (consumer@annabest.info)

I have come accross this wonderful website whilst searching for a list of UK harbours/ports that involve fishing. about the same size as whitstable in kent. I wonder if you have tips on how to find this list in existence , or maybe when i''ve put it together it can be of interest as a cross category..

I am was born in Musselburgh in 1964, and have been living in Arizona (USA) since 1996.
I love old songs of the sea, and thought I wanted to write something about the Fisherrow fishwives, which brought me to your web site.
It was indeed a pleasure to view the photographs of the harbour, and read the brief history of it.
Thank you for bringing me close to home.
