Folkestone's Fishing & Heritage Museum: Guided Tour
FRIDAY 20 SEPTEMBER - SUNDAY 22 SEPTEMBER // MIDDAY
FOLKESTONE'S FISHING & HERITAGE MUSEUM, OVENDEN BUILDING, THE STADE (NEAR THE FISH MARKET)
Folkestone Fishing Museum is a fascinating, hands-on display of fishing equipment, artefacts and pictures of former Folkestone fishermen and their boats gathered and cared for by a dedicated group of Folkestone Fishermen. Extreme importance is attached to the relevance of fishing and the sea to the town’s development over the centuries. During these guided tours, there will be opportunities to handle items to discover their use, size, weight, and difficulties of operating in a small space on a moving vessel. Learn rope splicing, net breeding, mending and a variety of knots.
