The Coble Coast

The Coble is intrinsically linked with the coast from Berwick to the Humber, it is a distinctive craft and it’s history is one that fascinates members of the CKS. The CKS and it’s members have an interest in all aspects of maritime history, but the Coble as a fishing craft holds a particular relevance for us.

Not only is it the Coble which interests us, but the many facets of history along the coast, including; fishing methods, family history and the role of the family unit in fishing communities.
