Appledore Shipping Forecast. Great news fairweather on its way for Appledore Shipyard.

Great news fairweather on its way for Appledore Shipyard. The yard recently purchased for £7m had a visit from the Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday 25th August. That Babcock sign on the door will soon be changing to Harland & Wolff...

350 vessels were built here before its closure on March 2019. The Appledore Yard was founded in 1855. The last vessel to be built at the yard was the LÉ George Bernard Shaw, an Irish Naval Service vessel. 
The photos below features the Appledore Yard on the Torridge Estuary, with its doors open, were taken on 29th April 2018. North Devon coast and countryside heritage come together, farming, fishing industry and shipbuilding. 
On the horizon you can see over to the Goldcoast across Bideford Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
