More about this scene

Caption for Appledore, Quay 1923: The quay at Appledore, built in 1846, still stands; but these coastal trading schooners, once the lifeblood of trading along this north Devon coast, are now only memories, superseded by motor transport. Appledore has a long history of shipbuilding, and its covered shipyard was the largest in Europe when it was opened in 1970.
