Ships of the Chester River

by Richard Martin
£16.00   paperback  Bridge Books (2019)

Ships of the Chester River by Richard Martin Ships of the Chester River is the history of more than 600 vessels that were launched after 1800 in the Dee estuary, in Chester and North Wales, and the families and companies that built them.
Although the industry on the Dee was not on the scale of that on the neighbouring Mersey estuary, ship building was a significant business in both Chester and the Dee ports throughout the nineteenth century. This is the first book to be published on this subject, and reveals the great variety of Chester River vessels which sailed all over the world, serving in many different and interesting roles.
