Projects

National Historic Ships UK has delivered a range of projects with the support of a number of external funding bodies, including the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Big Lottery and the PRISM Fund.  These include the Shipshape Heritage Training Partnership (SHTP) project - which offered 12-month training placements in traditional seamanship to 10 young people, the First World War project - which told the forgotten stories of over 70 registered historic vessels from 1914-1918, and the Shipshape East Anglia (SEA) project - which saw the establishment of the first Shipshape Network hub at the International Boatbuilding Training College (IBTC) Lowestoft.  More details of these schemes, the full evaluation reports and other associated documents are available to download from the individual project pages.
