just a few more random images from this famous dockyard.
On arrival you are treated to this magnificent model of a man of war.
I have been told that these miniature guns do actually fire.
Close up of the picture on the wall in the first photograph.
In No 1 slip old machinery is stored and the dust, rust and cobwebs adorn.
It was closed for an exhibition but pity was taken on us and Robert and I were allowed to take a couple of pictures ir this magnificent skylighted roof.
Back on the ground floor, more old machinery caught my eye.
Moving on HMS Gannet with her rigging now replaced.
Her reflection in the water was marred by a slight ripple.
On to the Ropery with its massive long building its internal length is 1135 feet, for the young people 346 meters
If you need a job in the UK Mr Fiske I am sure you would be welcomed with open arms.
Information on how the rope was produced.
Lastly the most unphotographed machine in the dockyard this 1913 plate rolling machine.
Thanks for looking, Mike
