#307 – Chatham Dockyard 2 – chains, trains and cranes


As well as the ships, the yard is stuffed full of all types of mechanical goodness. There is a short section of the once extensive railway system intact, along with a number of operational steam and diesel engines that work on some weekends.

The big slipway is also full of a huge collection of machinery, vehicles and boats but time did not permit a full look round, alas.

  1. Some lovely rusty textures there, Andy. The cranes remind me of Prince’s Wharf in Bristol.
