Between 2002-2005 English Heritage photographers from the Swindon office took photographs of buildings in Bridport, a town where the flax and hemp industry was established by the beginning of the 13th century and continued through to modern times. Bridport's industrial landscape includes textile mills, a wide range of well-preserved historic housing, walks used for spinning twine and rope, and buildings around the harbour at West Bay. Some of the photographs were subsequently used in the English Heritage publication 'Bridport and West Bay: The buildings of the flax and hemp industry' published in 2006.
