Paull Shipyard 1812

On May 11th 2012 it will be¬†exactly 200 years since the Royal Navy ship of the line HMS Anson was launched from the Shipyard at Paull. The shipyard was¬†further down the river than the present site of Hepworth’s Shipyard, it was at the end of Anson Villas near to the sportsfield. The shipyard was owned by a Thomas Steemson. 1812 was in fact one of their busiest years ever with the completion and launch of the Apollo in January for the East India Company and the preparation to launch HMS Anson in May.

Under the Village Hall

In 1983 a brick skin was put around the wooden Village Hall. This meant that the younger memers of the village could no longer get underneath the hall to their ‘dens’. Recently, during the planning work for the New Village Hall, we had to go under the floor of the Village Hall and we took some photographs of what it looks like today. If anyone has any meories they would like to share then send them to Paul Cross at and we will publish them. No doubt they will bring back some memories for certain people.
