Visiting Wick Heritage Museum
I haven't been to Wick Heritage Museum yet...
Little is known of the early history of this Northern Scottish town but there is ample evidence in the surrounding countryside of Neolithic/Bronze Age settlement and the shelters and defences of succeeding Ages. However, it was the Vikings that gave Wick its name (from the old Norse vik = bay). Although King James the VI of Scotland made Wick a Royal Burgh in 1589 it was not until the beginning of the 19th century that the town began to realise its potential. By 1860 it had grown to be Europe s premier herring fishing port. The town s development around the fickle fortunes of fishing is a remarkable story of vision, good planning, investment, courage, hardship and industry. Wick s Heritage is graphically documented in - an award-winning Museum - a beautifully restored 19th century fishing boat - the unique Johnston Collection revealing 112 years of social history captured by a family of local photographers - and much, much more!
