One of our dreams for MJR is to acquire a sailing ship that can be fitted out as a replica slave ship and used as part of an exhibition centre (see Projects). Another exciting possibility for this vessel would be to sail it around some of the ports used in the slave trade. Nigel Pocock of MJR has published a first draft of "A Voyage Around the Slave Ports of Britain", a survey of the many ports of Britain used for the transport of slaves, with statistics and stories. PLEASE NOTE: This document is very much a ‘work-in-progress’, with a number of gaps still to be filled. If anyone reading is able to provide additional information, which would be very helpful, please contact MJR.
