The four counties of SW England comprising Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
We welcome members who have an interest in the Maritime History of our region, no matter where they live.
We hold a number of meetings each year at different venues throughout the Region, enabling our members and friends to visit many places of maritime interest, from museums, galleries and nautical colleges to ship-yards, naval establishments and fishing ports. Talks and seminars cover a wide range of topics, covering the whole maritime spectrum, and members enjoy a regular opportunity to meet and exchange views on their current work and interests with like minded friends.
We publish an informative newsletter South West Soundings three times a year containing short articles, book reviews and information on our members, events and activities. We also publish Maritime South West which contains a range of articles of historical and current interest. These publications are FREE. In addition from time to time we publish Maritime Monographs in the form of books available to members at minimal cost.
An invitation to join us is extended to anyone whose interests include the sea, ships and seafaring, in the widest sense and at whatever level. The South West Maritime History Society is an informal friendly group and we look forward to sharing with you a varied programme of meetings, visits and events, on a broad maritime theme, at locations throughout the South West.
