We are trying to get a BSL interpreter but the time of year, day of week and ‘remoteness’ of venue are proving a stumbling block. We will keep this site up to date with progress.

How do tides affect our lives? How has that changed through history?

Making a living on or by the sea – fishermen and pirates, wreckers and dockers – making a new life across the sea – escaping pograms and wars, and the endlessly travelling – to paddlers and wild swimmers.
