DIY Tip - blunt the end of your tripod legs then they won't split the ground when you bang them in. Wink

What do you expect? Football is this nations religion and is more important that government or food.

If they had left it there the hooligans would burn it.

Nice shot BTW.

Nice one Andy. I remember this ship when it used to be in dock at Hartlepool.
Nice to see the old gal again,
.....something about the Bishop said to the actress.

This image brings back fond memories I remember when when it was towed into Hartlepool as a floating hull, no masts, superstucture,guns next to nothing above the waterline. Also remember when after its refurbishment it floated out on its way to Portsmouth which is the proper place for it ,with all the towns naval history.
Nice work Andy

Many thanks folks.

The Ship is staying in Portsmouth Ian,
But she will be obscured by the stadium.

Who allows this vandalism should be hung from the yardarm. Nothing is sacred any more, a real piece of history this image Andy. Ron.

You have to be Joking...the Royal Naval Base must never go...what about H.M.S she to be moved as well ?...and the Nautical Museum and the Jobworthys that check your bags ect...Jeeze...all for commercial claptrap...Portsmouth has always been one of the major Home Ports...S**T...what a sad day...

Thank you.
Not all the Navy Base is going well not yet.
from what Ive been told the base is to be down sized so it will only be a matter of time before that becomes a shopping mall.

Nicely set in context & at least we can remember how things looked from superbly photographed records such as this.

It's a great story! An innovative and imaginative football stadium to be developed on the waterfront. The Warrior will/may be relocated---so what's the problem?

Even better - it's now NOT being built on the waterfront, as the Navy says it's too dangerous.
