Quick Reference

Trade along the coasts of Britain in the medieval and early modern periods was largely an extension of river trade, even though goods were transhipped at the coastal ports. The east coast of England was the busiest, in terms of both exports and the conveyance of bulky goods of low value, such as coal and grain, to London. The back‐carriage of hides and groceries helped to make this trade viable. See T. S. Willan, The English Coasting Trade, 1600–1750 (1967), and David Hussey, Coastal and River Trade in Pre‐Industrial England: Bristol and its Region, 1680–1730 (2000).
