Heritage Harbours

 Heritage Harbours

A joint initiative by the Maritime Heritage Trust (MHT) and NationalHistoric Ships (NHS) Shipshape Network; with strong support from the European Maritime Heritage (EMH)

The proposal is that historic Ports and harbours in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland become officially recognised as ‘Heritage Harbours’.

A Heritage Harbours recognises the great value in sensitively developing their, often superb, historic buildings; waste land; mooring; and maintenance facilities for both local and visiting historic vessels
