Postponed until further notice - Cradle of Thames Boatbuilding: Guided tour of maritime Brentford

PLEASE NOTE: In light of the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in order to help ensure the safety of MHT Friends, members and our communities, this event is postponed until further notice. 
Please sign up to our mailing list to hear when we can put this event on for you in the future.


Join us on this unusual guided tour of working west London shipyards. The day will include a yard in Brentford – a site where boats have been built and repaired since the 1700s – as well as a visit to Lots Ait, one of the most important maritime heritage sites in west London. Here, historic boatbuilding and repair yards still survive and are being restored.

This tour will be led by Richard Albanese, MHT Trustee and Maritime Manager of Trinity Buoy Wharf and SS Robin.
