About us

Poole Maritime Trust is dedicated to recording the history of the ancient port and harbour of Poole from the earliest recorded settlements to the present day. We welcome historic snippets dealing with the many and varied trades associated with the harbour and its environs. From Clay, Fish, Minerals etc. right through to the modern steel Ro-Ro and tourist trade. We welcome illustrations and photographs relating, only, to the above issues. 

Our Projects

In the past the Trust has participated in a number of research projects, funding most of the diving and providing a dive tender for the Studland Bay wreck Project in the 1980’s.

The Trust founded The Poole Harbour Heritage Project Ltd, [PHHP] in September 2000 which, as a registered charity, instigates, carries out and supports archaeological research related to the Poole Harbour area. The Poole Harbour Heritage Project is currently engaged in a major archaeological survey of the Harbour and its environs.  Research has been under taken on the Green Island Causeway and on Green Island.
