We are building up a series of pages on the history of the Port of Swansea. Some of these are in response to questions we have received and some are learning support for the History of the Port of Swansea course. The resource sheets for the History of the Port course are numbered. They aren't all here yet, some will be given out in classes.Up ] Swansea's first tugs ] Catherine Zeta Jones and the ZETA ] Reading about the Port of Swansea ] Swansea Harbour in 1771 ] Swansea's South Dock (c.1870s) ] Mr Padley of Swansea ] Brunel's report for Swansea Docks 1846 ] The Victorian port of Swansea ] James Harris Seascape Painter ] 2. Charter of William de Newburgh ] 6. A Royal Charter ] 9. Trade In The Early Port ] 10.  A port Indenture of 1135 ] 11. Salt A vital commodity ] 12. Swansea's Layer Keeper ] 12a. Early Quays and Docks ] 14. The Uncrowned King Of Swansea ] 15. Swansea in the 1790s ] 16. After Gabriel ] 17. 1790s Swansea; The Time For Change ] 18. The Harbour Act and the Mumbles Lighthouse ] 19. Port Tennant ] 20. Port Development. A Chronology ] 21. The South Wales ports ] 21a. The port in the 1840s. ] 22. Joseph Rutter's pamphlet of 1843 ] 25. Thomas Page's report of 1846. ] 27. John Henry Vivian ] 29. The East Dock ]
