NOTES: Chatham Dockyard was established as a Royal Dockyard from 1567. It closed in 1984, but has a number of surviving historic structures ranging in date from the early 18th century to the early-mid 20th century. It is now managed as a visitor attraction. There are seven interlinking masthouses used to make and store masts, while the mouldloft was where the lines of each frame of a ship would be taken from the plan and scribed, full size, into the floor by shipwrights. See RIBA118896 for a black and white version of this image.
