Title: HMS Namur (the ship under Chatham's Wheelwrights shop floor)
Post by: davpott on October 29, 2012, 22:03:17
I guess that the Chatham Dockyard and ship anoraks will already know all about this. :)

For those of us that only have a passing interest in such matters or have stood at the doors of the Wheelwright shop and wondered, as I have, why she was there might be interested in this. In latest edition of ‘Current Archaeology’ (December 2012 issue 273). There is an eight page (including pictures) article about the ship under the floor. It’s about how they discovered who she was and a little of her history.

It dropped through my letter box this morning, I think it is usually on the bookshelves two or three days after subscribers receive their copies.
