SAILING PAST THE POINT

New

Without doubt Battery Point in Portishead is one of the best locations in the UK to watch ships as they pass by. Shipping enthusiasts will stake the claims of other viewing points but it is difficult to surpass the variety of ships seen at Battery Point – and their closeness to the observer on land. To illustrate this variety, we published Passing the Point and Still Passing the Point.

Without doubt Battery Point in Portishead is one of the best locations in the UK to watch ships as they pass by. Shipping enthusiasts will stake the claims of other viewing points but it is difficult to surpass the variety of ships seen at Battery Point – and their closeness to the observer on land. To illustrate this variety, we published Passing the Point in 2005 and Still Passing the Point in 2010. Shipping does not exist on a limb; like everything else it is subject to change and variation. The changes in the Bristol Channel shipping scene over the last twelve years have been considerable.

The photographs have been arranged in small groups to illustrate the various types of ships which pass Battery Point. There are now various websites which purport to feature the passing shipping. In fact most of these offer little information other than basic (and sometimes incorrect) details cribbed from other websites. 
This book will provide interesting details about the ships, their builders, their cargoes, and, where appropriate, their significance within the wider maritime world.
