Heritage vessels to be saved in UK regions

National Historic Ships has chosen four areas of the UK to act as centres for the preservation of heritage vessels. The Solent, River Mersey, Bristol and River Medway all demonstrate a natural grouping of facilities or skills and a high
concentration of historic vessels.

National Historic Ships will shortly be revealing the official name and logo for the UK ship preservation network and is currently working on a dedicated website, which will cover the whole country, as well as providing pages for each pilot area.

The ship preservation network offers a unique opportunity for vessel owners, businesses, heritage organisations and all those with an interest in high quality maritime craftsmanship to communicate with each other. It will provide a marketing framework for the sector, as well as forging partnerships between those with similar aims, thereby promoting funding opportunities and achieving results in a way that would not be possible on an individual basis.

If you have skills or services which could contribute to the Network, you can sign up for a free entry in an online Directory of contacts at: http://www.nationalhistoricships.org.uk/pages/directory-of-skills-and-services.html
