Ships and Boats:

    • Ilfracombe Shipwrecks. This is a great site that highlights just some of the many shipwrecks that dot the Devon Coastline. Fascinating, but tragic.

    • The "Kathleen and May". This beautiful 3-masted topsail schooner is a piece of living history and is located in nearby Bidford. Apart from the beautiful and sensitive restoration, this boat has another feature worthy of note.The original reefing gear fitted was the first known example of Appledore roller-reefing, the sail being reefed by a ratchet lever that engaged the cogs on the gaff boom thereby winding the sail around it and then locked to prevent the sail unwinding from the boom. She worked out of Appledore for some years, (as the "Lizzie May" - named after her first owner's daughters), and thereafter many more years working out of Youghal, Co.Cork in Ireland, (as the "Kathleen and May" after her new owner's daughters)
    • St.Mary's Chuch, Appledore: The connection here is that the wooden screen in this Protestant church is made from timbers of the sailing ship Marco Polo. The church was founded in 1836 on Appledore's quays.
