News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Hello cliveh,

I managed to speak with one of the dockyard staff today who worked there prior to its closure. He advised it was to the eastern side of the dockyard on the continuation of what is now called East Road, past the North mast pond towards the basins. He remembers a radiographical building being there. Could there have been more than one?

Thanks for that Longpockets  :)

This IWM photo © IWM (A 31397) is said to be the 'Naval Radiographical Laboratory, Chatham 1948'  I presume it was in the Dockyard somewhere? Anyone have any ideas or recognize the building?
