Masterly achievement of Masters of Building

It was a pleasure to read Dan Cruickshank's excellent article on E S Prior ('Material Values', aj 18.11.99). We have not seen such quality for a very long time in the aj.

I look forward to you maintaining this high standard in future articles.

Harbouring concerns about 'fishing village'

In his masterful article on E S Prior, Dan Cruickshank writes that West Bay, Bridport was a 'little fishing village'. West Bay is the absurd modern name for Bridport Harbour, which was formed in the eighteenth-century and reconstructed in 1824. For several decades ships from Russia, the Baltic and France sailed there, those from the first bringing flax and hemp for Bridport's net and rope industries. It was a small international port, much more than a base for fishing.
