Oyster boat is subject of exhibition in Emsworth

Have your say

A MUSEUM’S first exhibition of the year is about a much-loved historic sailing boat.

David Rudkin is the new curator of Emsworth Museum.

He has put together a show on the 10th anniversary of the relaunch of the Oyster Boat Terror.

Terror was built in about 1890 to support the large oyster dredgers that worked in Emsworth Harbour.

It was left to decay until a project led by Chichester Harbour Conservancy using a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund allowed it to be restored.

It is run by volunteers and carries passengers around Chichester Harbour.

The exhibition opens this Saturday at Emsworth Museum, above the first station in North Street.
