About this Outport
The North West Outport is based in Liverpool and Birkenhead on the River Mersey and 64 members of the Honourable Company are registered with the Outport. 18 are seagoing members and 9 are Liverymen.
The Outport covers North Wales. Isle of Man, Cumbria, Lancashire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire and West Midlands.
We hold five functions each year, 3 of which are primarily for members to discuss local issues appertaining to the maritime industry and is an opportunity for our members to express the views of the North West to the various professional committees on board HQS Wellington.
Two social functions are held annually, the Spring Ladies lunch which is held in the first week of May in Chester and the Annual Master’s lunch in Liverpool at which we welcome the Master, wardens and Clerk with their ladies in November. The lord Lieutenant and High Sheriff of Merseyside are invited to the Master’s lunch together with the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and other local dignitaries.
Both our social functions are very well attended with several members from neighboring Outports also joining us.
Members from head quarters or from any Outport will always be very welcome at any of our functions in the North West.
