Maritime Links Page



Maritime Links Logoo

The following links are mainly of other Maritime websites, though there are other links that I have found useful and helpful, that are of interest not only to myself but hopefully to visitors to my site also.

If you are similarly minded and have a Maritime site that you would like to link to mine and are willing to have a reciprocal link, please contact me with details.

This P and O Heritage websit is a great site, keeping the heritage of what was the finest shipping company in the world, and British at that.

Although the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company is now no longer British, though its name still lives on under Dubai ownership, the memory of the Company's magnificent vessels both pre and post WW2 lives on through countless private websites (including my own company webpages) and this site. Be sure to visit.

The ancient Georgian town of Lymington, situated on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire and ferry port for the Lymington to Freshwater ferry link.


Lymington, Cygnet, Tasmania. The hamlet of Lymington was once at the centre of the apple growing industry in the Huon Valley, south of Hobart. Disastrous bushfires in the 1960s and 70s wiped out most of the orchards and cottages. Though there are one or two occupied dwellings there Lymington has become the name of a district, but it does have a local bay which bears its name.
