Maritime historian honoured

LYME museum trustee Ken Gollop has received a top award from the South West Maritime History Society.

He travelled to the Brunel Centre at the SS Great Britain in Bristol to receive a cut glass paperweight from chairman Dale Thomas.

He commended Mr Gollop for his ongoing contribution to maritime history and for his long service to the resort’s museum.

The regional awards were instigated in 2008 and to date there have been just seven recipients.

Impressively, this is the second award for a Lyme resident. Peter Lacey received one in 2008 for research for his book on the Maritime History of Lyme Regis which will be published next year.
