Ships of the Chester River

by Richard Martin - £16.00  Bridge Books (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844941162 | ISBN 10: 1844941167

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.
