The Reasons

The Trustees and SBA have a desire to support local and regional artists to showcase their work, skills and talent.  To support the town of Langport to be a destination location for visitors and locals to shop, eat and enjoy leisure time.

Why a Gallery at the Wharf?

A gallery has multiple roles for the artists, both visible and invisible:

Visible

  • To incubate
  • To provide a space
  • To support
  • To showcase
  • To promote
  • To selling the works

Invisible

  • To provide advice
  • To provide guidance
  • To connect
  • To energise
  • To co-ordinate
  • To keep fresh

Restored using sustainable techniques and local, natural materials, The Warehouse at Great Bow Wharf, on the bank of the River Parrett, now serves as a thriving centre for social enterprise, with the Kitchen café, exhibition space and well equipped conference facilities.

The building offers serviced offices/work spaces to rent on long or short term lets, including hot desk space, together with meeting spaces for hire. 

The present warehouse was built in the early 1800s to serve the Parrett Navigation Company for trading salt and corn. However there has clearly been a wharf here for centuries before that; Langport is mentioned in the Domesday Book by the name of 'Lanporth' - thought to mean the 'long port' by some, or the 'long marketplace' by others.
