Dunglass Harbour: Its History, Repair and Management

Dunglass Harbour: Its History, Repair and Management

Ben Tindall speaks to us about this hidden historic fishing harbour
and how it was saved from development.

Time: Join from 6.15pm – lecture starts at 6.30pm
Venue: Online
Booking: Tickets must be booked in advance on the Eventbrite website. Tickets are not priced but we do suggest a donation of £6 (free for students).


Architect Ben Tindall reveals how a typical small harbour can be brimming with interest, from geology and mining to smuggling and science, as well as fishing and disaster. Characters encountered in the talk include the explorer Captain Basil Hall, the engineer Joseph Mitchell, Somerville the Soldier, and the artist E A Walton. We will also discover how repairs in the marine environment can be complex, particularly when funding is hard to get.
