Portsmouth Dockyard - an illustrated talk
Discover how Portsmouth Dockyard has changed at Gosport Discovery Centre
Portsmouth Dockyard - Once the Largest Dockyard in the World
Supported by a fascinating selection of photographs, Philip MacDougall talks about some of the many ways in which the Portsmouth Dockyard has changed and developed over time.
Starting with the dockyard built by King Richard I, he will cover such milestones as the building of the Victorian dockyard, the launching of the mighty HMS Dreadnought, which was built at the dockyard, as well as a virtual tour of the yard and its naval role.
Moving forward through the decades, Philip will also look at the impact of the two world wars, as well as the Cold War, before bringing the story up to date.
