Drs. Martin H. Evans and Janet West maintain a list of Naval and Maritime Museums in Britain and Ireland at http://people.ds.cam.ac.uk/mhe1000/museums.htm

Click on the link above to go to the whole maritime museums web-site. The main page is a large 300+ KB, 10,000+ line xhtml text file. There are 4 other pages, with maps, indexes, notes and links.

With effect from February 2013, the shortened list of museums with their URL links only, has been discontinued. It had been included to help those with slow dialup connections to the internet who had trouble accessing the full list of museums. We do not think this is necessary any more. We have also discontinued the list of classic but non-museum vessels, as they are now covered elsewhere.

There are some minor incidental files also held on my web-space, including some related to photography.

An "essay" about bollards, especially those that appear to be old muzzle-loading cannon that have been reused. This is still being developed and comments are welcome. At: http://people.ds.cam.ac.uk/mhe1000/bollards/cannonbollards.htm

Comments and views about the use of flash photography in museums and art galleries at: http://people.ds.cam.ac.uk/mhe1000/musphoto/flashphoto2.htm

"The only scholarship that has any merit, I suppose, is what is useful to other people as well as oneself. The most meritorious of all is what is useful to other scholars, sometimes for generations."
