The industrial landscape of the East Neuk has changed significantly in the last 150 years. All physical evidence seems to have gone of boatbuilder, John Alexander Millar’s yards. He built at least 60 large fishing vessels in Cellardyke, before moving to Anstruther Esplanade.

Richard Wemyss will tell of his discovery of this highly regarded and innovative boatbuilder and some of the vessels he built during the largest period of growth in our fishing industry, the 1860s to 1903.
