TALK Maritime Heritage Stories from the Torridge 9 February 2023 Michael Teare, Way of the Wharves

Shipbuilding wasn’t the only economic activity thriving along the Torridge estuary. The history of the riverside communities involves timber & emigration, tobacco & pottery, coal mining & gravel extraction, fisheries & agriculture, energy & enterprise. The Torridge estuary has a history shaped by its geography as well as by national & international events.

He explores how to bring these stories to life and interest a wider audience.
