Abstract This paper examines how the geography of UK international trade has changed since the UK’s accession to the European Economic Community using a newly constructed data set that gives a detailed breakdown of the UK’s imports and exports by both port of entry and exit and commodity. Our results suggest that between 1970 and 1992 overall imports and exports re-orientated in favour of ports located nearer to the continent. The vast majority of individual commodities also saw a similar re-orientation.
