Slipyard Tour with Bill Foster

Long-term Battery Point resident and master boat builder Bill Foster has again offered to lead a tour of the Napoleon Street slipyards. The tour lasts for about an hour and will take place on a Sunday morning at 11.00. This is a wonderful opportunity for residents to learn about the fascinating history of the area.

Extracts from Bill’s memoir about his early life entitled ‘A Battery Point Kid’ can be found on the Community Association website. You can also view Bill talking about his experiences as a young man working in the slipyards in ‘Voices of Battery Point’.

If you are interested in participating in a tour, please contact Charles<dot>Morgan<at>iinet<dot>net<dot>au. We will negotiate a suitable date for a tour.
