After the Ebb is a series of beautiful illustrated newspapers by artist Kate Drummond celebrating the memories and stories of Morecambe Bay’s fishing communities. Between 2015 and 2017 Morecambe Bay Partnership worked with community volunteers and oral historian Jenn Mattinson to gather an audio archive about the history of fishing around the Bay. Known as ‘Catching Tales’ over fifty hours of interviews have now been made. The archive provides a unique resource for the community and researchers capturing everything from the skills and changing techniques of the industry, to a snap shot of the social history of fishing families and their own reflections about life lived on the edge of Bay.
