The Historic Dockyard Chatham
The Dockyard at Chatham on the river Medway is full of interest for everyone, for example, the making of rope, like this on the left, or huge anchor cables. Rope making at Chatham has been going on since pre-Victorian times and is carried out in one of the longest buildings in Europe, serving the Royal Navy’s huge demand, especially during Nelson’s time . Ropes made at Chatham are distinguished by their yellow centre strand.
