Lowestoft Harbour, Suffolk. The original inner harbour was built by the Lowestoft and Norwich Navigation Company and was constructed in 1837. The development of the harbour led to a rapid growth in the fishing industry and associated engineering and ship building companies such as Brooke Marine, Richard and Boulton and Paul. Large scale ship building, which included the building of vessels for the Royal Navy, continued into the 1980s.
