Once Brown and Clapson’s shipyard in the mid-19th century, the shipyard adjacent to Barton Haven is now dedicated to rebuilding and restoring vintage yachts. Enjoy a guided tour of the boats under restoration, try your hand at carving, knots and lashings, and gain an insight into the skills behind heritage boat building, as well as the owners’ plans to pass on these skills to future generations. Stout footwear is essential, as the tour involves climbing ladders and moving around a working shipyard. Booking is essential on 01652 660380.
