Barmouth Brig

The Barmouth Brig was created for the kids of Barmouth on the Wern Minach in the summer of 2007.

Based on a 1780s design the brig echoes the heydey of shipbuilding in Barmouth. I have always wanted to build a boat, so this gave me a chance to practice the art of lofting, steambending and framing from grown oak. The kids love it!

With vital assistance and design from Giles Thaxton and Steve Berry.

With special thanks to Alen Ashby who sadly died shortly after completion of the project .RIP

We also built a couple of Fire Ships which we burnt on the beach
