Welcome to the Longshed, a maritime heritage initiative at the heart of our community
Woodbridge Riverside Trust (WRT), a nonprofit community organisation, welcomes you to the Longshed, our unique maritime heritage initiative, in the heart of the Woodbridge waterfront.
The Longshed is open to visitors from 11.00-13.00 each Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and on other days for special events and exhibitions.
The once derelict site of the old Whisstocks Boatyard has been transformed. In April 2018 we took on the lease of the Longshed, a purpose built community resource comprising a boatbuilding workshop and mezzanine gallery. The Longshed is home to a range of creative projects that people can take part in, or simply watch progress. We want to secure real long term benefits through opportunities to find out about our outstanding maritime heritage and riverside environment, through learning, training, developing skills and, most of all, enjoyment.
