Publications

We produce an annual journal called ‘The Barquentine’, in which we publish articles, long or short, relating to the history and heritage of the Fowey River area. It might be a new piece of research – there are many dedicated researchers in the area – or some recollections of earlier times. Contributions are welcome from anyone, member or non-member, who has information to share. The Barquentine is free to members and can be purchased for £4 at our meetings, from selected outlets around the harbour or via our secretary.
