Chatham Historic Dockyard, 16 May 2017

For the nautically-inclined, we ventured to Chatham Historic dockyard with a wide choice of attractions in the 80 acres–The most visited exhibits were the three boats in dry dock – from the ancient sailing frigate HMS Gannet, through the WW2 destroyer HMS Cavalier. Those who investigated ‘the Silent Service’ and clambered down into the submarine HMS Ocelot , were especially impressed. The rope-making demonstration showed how the old boats were provided with essential gear. It was impossible to visit all the items on show and visitors could have spent longer.
