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.

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.

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.

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.

thanks for the information, we are based on the Axe and are looking for sites to dry out against a wall and an alternative to Weston.

Hi Bob,

Nice site..I am sure the fishing fraternity will find it useful. Some interesting information on harbour sizes too!

Colin Davidson (West Highland Anchorages & Moorings Association (colin @whamassoc.org.uk)

This has the potential to be an excellent site. What is missing at present is a sketch chartlet of the harbours. For the west coast of Scotland you might care to liaise with Martin Lawrence who produces the Imray pilot books.

Viewed the site today, very interesting and informative. I am sure it will be very beneficial to sailors from all over Europe, and also to the Maritime Enthusiast.

Congratulations and very well done.

Good idea for a site. I used msn 5.2 to browse and the map and place names and dots all came up on separate bits!! A wee glitch. Appreciate incorporating Gemini.
