Maryport Harbour – Cumbria

fishing_vessel-0339

I love to wander around Maryport and document the various fishing vessels sheltered in its harbour. It’s a fascinating place; no matter how many times I visit there’s always something new to discover. I tend to favour square format when making photos at this location. The letters LL identify this vessel’s port as Liverpool, but that’s all the information I have.

  1. I like a lot he tonalities of your b&w pics and I also agree with Christian!
    By the way, I come from the north of Spain and I never seen an 8.5 m tide there, it is impressive!!

    • Hi Karen. I’ve seen photos of 19th century Maryport with the port full of sailing ships. Mast upon mast visible against the skyline! Fletcher Christian (Mutiny on the Bounty) had links with this area – a truly historic location. Thanks for taking a look 🙂
