The evidence is there and local author and historian Dr Philip MacDougall will tell the story of this important facility and reveal the exact site of the harbour in this talk. Philip, a local parish councillor in the area, has written a number of books on the subject of naval dockyards both in this country and elsewhere and will bring his expertise to the subject of this local dockyard that once served the royal fleet of King Harold.
