Sorry its not the Camperdown but the Cornwallis, She was made of Teak and she was sunk to be used as a jetty where she stayed for almost a century.  The view above is in her gun deck, which was flooded twice a day!

The first picture is the remains of the ship that was sunk in the docks.  It was used to cross a basin mouth or something, the Camperdown?  I shall dig out the info in a while...

Thanks for adding all these pictures, there are some really nice ones!

a few shots of the dockyard workshop interiors





I don't know if this is the cable store but on the centre right of shot is stated recieved 6 6 99 which dates it rather neatly





 A shot of the foundry it appears they are laying moulds into the casting floor
