Discover Porlock Weir’s Fascinating Boat Shed Museum

Keri Jones from Exmoor Radio meets Derek Purvis, the founder of Porlock Weir’s Boat Shed Museum.

Derek talks about the museum’s masses of memorabilia and articles that document the wartime shipwrecks along the Bristol Channel. Sometimes official reasons were given for the wrecks. Derek shares some alternative theories. And Derek talks about Porlock’s leather craft industry, whose workers decorated the homes of the wealthy and even royalty in the late Victorian and Edwardian era.
