It's been so long since I entered here on a ship I expect I would not recognise the place any more. Great picture, love it.

A nice picture but a sign of the times insomuch as this old naval covered shipbuilding slipway is now surrounded by commercial business. The slipway is a listed building and is the oldest survivor of this type of shipbuilding facility in the UK, having been originally constructed in the 18th century. A statue of 'King Billy' (replica) stands guard on the right.

The commercial business is operated by boat builders 'Princess Yachts' and one of their products is alongside the slipway.
