After the Ebb

A creative project by Kate Drummond

Part of Catching Tales – Fishing Stories from Morecambe Bay' - a programme of community-based creative projects that celebrates the unique fishing heritage of Morecambe Bay.

After the Ebb is a series of illustrated newspapers, by Morecambe artist Kate Drummond.

This small publication, in the form of a newspaper, has 4 editions, and celebrates our H2H fishing oral history project, raises awareness of the archive that has been created from the project and shares a little of the memories we have collected.

After the Ebb editions feature memories from

  • Sunderland Point (first edition)
  • Morecambe & Heysham (second edition)
  • Flookburgh & Grange (third edition)
  • The final edition is a compendium edition celebrating the entire project. 

Work has been ongoing since 2015 with volunteers out and about around the Bay collecting memories and stories from men and women connected with the Bay’s fishing industries (find out more here), and the After the Ebb illustrated newspapers draw directly from this archive of material, helping to share its contents with the wider community.

Copies of the newspapers will be distributed around the communities of the Bay, and are also available from Morecambe Bay Partnership
