• This book focuses on the history of the town of Woodbridge and the surrounding countryside and coastal areas of Suffolk. It begins with the discoveries at Sutton Hoo, and a glimpse of the Anglo-Saxon world, then progresses on to the growth of Woodbridge as a country town from its early days around the Market Hill. It moves on to take in Snape, Aldeburgh, Orford, down the coast to Shingle Street and Bawdsey and just crosses over to the Felixstowe peninsular.
  • In this charming personal account, inspired primarily by oral histories and supported by archive sources and colourful photography, Robert Simper tells the story of Woodbridge through the ages, documenting changes that have taken place and in particular highlighting some of the character of the town and its surrounding countryside.
  • A series of coastal passages from Blakeney to St Katherine's Dock, London in a 22ft Great Yarmouth shrimper. Visiting and meeting people at most of the ports and rivers on the way. A well-told tale of East Coast sailing.
  • The first book of the series with colour photographs. It covers the River Deben, from its dangerous entrance bar at Felixstowe Ferry, up past Ramsholt and Waldringfield to Woodbridge and beyond, above Wilford Bridge to Ufford.
  • Barge traffic to Ipswich Dock and the creeks along the two rivers. Also Harwich shipping and gun punts at Manningtree. Informative captions, as in all this series, bring the photographs to life.
  • An acclaimed review of the fishing luggers of Cornwall and the trading schooners and ketches of the west of England. A brief history is given of the beach landing of Cornwall and Devon. Luggers racing at Looe, and the last of the north Devon trading vessels.
  • 'The Cambria Story' is written in conjunction with the Cambria Trust. When the 91ft sailing barge Cambria was launched in 1906 she was one of over two thousand barges trading from the East Coast ports, but she became the very last one trading under sail.
  • This book is based on five generations of the same family and how they have found a main crop or diversification to keep them in business, The opening chapter deals with the Second World War and memories of life in a coastal village which was sometimes under attack.

  • The mighty tidal River Thames from Gravesend up to Teddington Lock. Photographs of the sailing barges, and lighters that worked from the great dockland system. A glimpse of the world's largest docking that has now largely been swept away.
  • Black and white and colour photographs of the ports and rivers from Colne Point, in Essex and Lowestoft, to the northern end of Suffolk. From Sutton Hoo to the reminders of the nineteenth century beach companies and many of the places and boats that have gone.
