From 1875 to the present day, the Cardiff and Bristol Channel Incorporated Shipowners’ Association has been the representative body for shipowners in Cardiff and other Bristol Channel ports. Here David Jenkins looks at some of the most representative moments in its history: the reaction of the association to the proposal to build new docks in Barry in the 1880s, the Seamen’s Strike in 1911, and the schism that split the Association in 1912–14, among others.
