The talk followed the fortunes of the Glaven ports from soon after being made a Head Port in 1786 through its decline and eventual demise at the time of the First World War. It examined the effect of two Acts of Parliament, that set up the Blakeney Harbour Company and the 1821 Wiveton and Cley Enclosure Act. Then the topics of the type of trade the ports engaged in, the type of ships using the port and who owned them were covered before looking at wreck and rescues, embanking, the coming of the railways and the final days of the port. All of this was thoroughly illustrated using photographs artwork and data.
