This Saturday  in Emsworth


and next Saturday

and further ahead




June 28th- July 27th "JD.Foster - Emsworth Shipbuilder, Oyster and Timber Merchant" at Emsworth Museum  Saturdays: 10.30am -4.30pm  Sundays: 2.30pm  -  4.30pm



This exhibition by Bernie Gudge and Barry Mapley shows many aspects of J.D. Foster’s businesses and helps to illustrate his importance to Emsworth and the surrounding area.


James Duncan Foster was born in 1858 the third son of William Foster. Between 1885 and 1900 J.D. Foster built 11 oyster fishing smacks. Many shipbuilding experts consider these vessels to be the finest working sailing craft ever seen in the harbours of Britain. Echo, which is probably the most well known of his fleet, was chosen for the logo of Emsworth Maritime and Historical Trust.

A locally renowned racing cyclist, J.D. Foster competed in Chichester and it is believed helped to set up the Emsworth Racing Cycling Club. On his eightieth birthday he cycled 100 miles to the New Forest and back.


The pictures and documents on display are from Bernie Gudge’s own personal collection.

During the first weekend of the exhibition a number of people visited bringing with them photographs of the area that they had taken or had been handed on from other family members. In this way new information and pictures are being obtained for future exhibitions in the museum.

Part of the display shows how badly damaged and faded photographs can be restored.
