A Labour of Love.... In Teak

Many years ago I had the privilege of being one of very few people for many years to scramble, up to my waist in oily water, through HMS Warrior's shaft tunnel when her restoration in Hartlepool had just started, and what a job they made of her.
Well the years have gone by but those same good folk are now restoring the East Indiaman Trincomalee, the last of over 10,000 such ships. She has survived because, unlike all the others, she was built of teak. Again, the restoration trust is making a fantastic job of this venerable old lady. Well worth a visit.
