Discover Beverley’s shipbuilding past

An East Riding Archives project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, our project focuses on making digital images and cataloguing historic trawler plans from the archive of former  Beverley shipbuilders Cook, Welton & Gemmell.

The project will enable people to discover (or re-discover) Beverley’s maritime heritage, a part of the town’s industrial past that is rapidly fading from public memory.

Through talks, workshops, oral histories, a digital display of trawler plans, and a television documentary by Estuary TV, more people will be able to learn about this fascinating aspect of East Yorkshire’s shipbuilding past.

  1. Good times at Beverley. Fitting the stern tube, propeller and shaft to the vessels before launching and towing to C.D. Holmes at Princes Dock for fitting out.
