Weymouth has been a port for many Centuries and evidence shows that Roman Galleys sailed up the River Wey as far as Radipole where they could be beached and cargo unloaded for transport to the Roman Town of Durnovaria (Dorchester). Since the 1800s various reclamation schemes have increased the size of the harbour at the seaward end, which included construction of two piers and subsequent to this additional areas were reclaimed from the sea.
