The FEBRUARY Editorial The Mystery of the Missing Shrimps By Roger Turner PART 2 For centuries beam trawlers, originally working under sail, fished along the coast from Leigh-on-Sea to Gravesend and from Whitstable to Thanet. Their catches comprised brown shrimps, which were considered to have far more flavour than either pink shrimps or prawns. In one memorable catch, in 1954, a ten-minute tow near the shingle bank, the Whitstable Street, yielded a massive 130-gallon catch for the beam-trawler Emmeline, skippered by Vic Foreman and crewed by Bill Coleman. A group known as the “Canterbury shrimpers” joined those at Herne Bay in the 1930s to harvest catches using 6-8ft nets which were pushed at low tide off the town’s West Cliff. One cycled to Herne Bay, collected his net stored in a hut behind the Hampton Inn, then later pedalled back to Canterbury to sell his catch. Catches in recent years have declined to such an extent that today they are virtually non-existent locally. Although official records were not kept we know there were loads caught at Herne Bay 150 years ago. Capt. Charles Cornelius Gardiner (pictured) was Pier Master of the town’s first pier from 1844-1862. He hadn’t been in office long when he found he had a problem on his hands, with locals taking baskets of shrimps on to the pier and boarding steamers to sell them. In a letter, dated October 1844, to the Secretary of the Pier Company, Mr. F. Miller, he wrote (spelling as written): “I must confess there as has been repeated complaints as to the sad smell of fish which at times as been very bad all owing to parties throwing the shell of the shrimps between the planks and other parts of the Pier and we well know nothing can be worse to create rot. There are also Parties connected with the Steam Packets. I have heard them complain sadly, and saying what a nuisance they have been on Board.” In further correspondence, dated August 1845, Capt. Gardiner reported: “The shrimp sellers as been such annoyance latterly that I have been compelled to order them off the Pier. Yesterday morning one of them by the name of John Presly took of his Coat on the Pier and wished to fight me, and said he would like to spoil my Bloody face. I immediately went to Canterbury to obtain a warrant but the Magistrates would not grant me one unless there was anything in the Bye Laws that would empower them to do so. “In my absence from the Pier yesterday Solly White came with his man and a Basket of shrimps and persisted in going down the Pier and he did so. I hope and trust something will be done and an example made also of John Presley. The fellows they get together and when I passed they say there goes the Bloody Bull Dog.” Acknowledgements to Brian and Barry Mount and Jim Pressley.
