We’re knot just any ropemaker
Master Ropemakers Ltd, based in the heart of The Historic Dockyard Chatham. We manufacture and sells rope to the trade and customers across the world using a rope making process that dates back more than 400 years.
Chatham’s skilled Master Ropemakers have a wealth of knowledge and experience and provide rope for a range of uses, which include anything from rigging the world’s mightiest historic vessels, to fenders and battle ropes as well as playing a vital supporting role for a wide range of film and theatre productions.
We use natural and synthetic fibres in the manufacture and our team of craftsmen and women not only produce the rope but work with it: splicing, knotting, net making and creating bespoke products to customer requirements
Sadly the art of ropemaking is in decline in the UK so every time to make a purchase from us you are helping to keep our historic ropewalk and ropemaking skills alive.
