Arthur Ransome’s Nancy Blackett is in the Shotley Peninsula and Coastal Guides

Arthur Ransome’s favourite yacht, the Nancy Blackett, is now featured in more than 10,000 copies of two new free promotional magazines all over East Anglia.

The Shotley Peninsula Guide, a 40-page A4-size publication promoting the area around Pin Mill, features a double-page spread on Nancy Blackett, a further page on our Selina King photographic exhibition at the Pin Mill Studio, plus a second double-page spread about Pin Mill which includes information about the Arthur Ransome Walking Trail.

The Shotley Peninsula Guide is available through Tourist Information Centres, as well as many hotels, pubs, restaurants and other venues, and can be viewed online here. You can also download a copy of the Nancy Blackett, Selina King and Pin Mill pages here.

Nancy Blackett also features in the 2018 edition of the A5-size Coastal Guide, which is distributed mainly through sailing and yacht clubs. The Coastal Guide can be viewed online here, and you can download a copy of the Nancy Blackett pages here.

Plans are also in hand for Nancy Blackett to feature in a new Shotley Peninsula guide on the All About Ipswich tourism website – so watch this – and that – space!
