Focusing upon three decades of research, the fishing community of Hessle Road represents a unique breed of people who endured hardship from the elements in times of peace and danger from the enemy in times of war.

Amy Johnston flew to Australia single-handed - she is revealed as a Hessle Road girl. Cowboys of the Arctic Circle, shows how Hollywood influenced the young trawler lads.'Hull's Fishing Heritage' is, all in all, a sparkling assortment of vibrant stories that reflect Hull's Fishing Heritage.
