Bristol Seaport - One Thousand Years of History

Join Port photographer Colin Momber on a magical dockside odyssey.

The growth and prosperity of Bristol has been intrinsically linked to its port since a small community was founded at the confluence of the rivers Frome and Avon over 1,000 years ago.

Colin Momber tells this fascinating story, with the help of men who worked as dock pilots, shipwrights and dockers. The journey is illustrated by a wealth of photographs featuring the City Docks, Avonmouth, Portishead and Royal Portbury.

You will also enjoy extracts from a superb colour archive film, made in 1963.

Since the closure of the City Docks in the early 1970s, the activities of the Port of Bristol have been beyond the public gaze. Yet the success of Portbury and Avonmouth has seen Bristol re-emerge as a major port – and one which has played a key role in the city’s prosperity.

The story is brought up to date with footage of the biggest ship ever to enter Bristol, when she docked at Portbury in April 2002.
