Now i'm not one for hanging around in boatyards usually but this place is something special, it is the stunning 3 Slip in Chatham Dockyard and its breathtaking! It was built in 1838 and you can not help but admire the craftsmanship that went into this place and its so vast its like a beautiful wooden cathedral (incidentally 1838 was the year Queen Victoria was crowned *)
I was here just as the sun was getting low in the sky and started peeking through the windows at the end giving the whole place a peaceful dusty glow, and it was easy to forget the reality of the backbreaking work that went on in that building when it was used to cover an entire ship while it was being built.
Closer detail of the end here for wood lovers!
*corrected! thank you Bill!
