Last Sunday my pal Sophie and I had an outing with our camera’s, and went to visit Hartlepool Historic Quay. This from the website

Hartlepool Marina’s centrepiece is the award-winning Historic Quay – a faithful reproduction of an 18th century seaport portraying the exciting experience of what life was like at the time of Nelson and Trafalgar.

Hartlepool Historic Quay is home to the Trincomalee – Europe’s oldest floating warship! HMS Trincomalee 1817 is berthed afloat at Hartlepool Historic Quay, where a major award-winning restoration and interpretation of the Ship was completed in the early summer of 2001. You can read more about the restoration of HMS Trincomalee here, or read about her history here.

It was a cold but bright day, a bit of blue sky after long days of grey, and we made the most of it! So let me take you around the Quay, and the glorious Trincomalee.

You can see the ships masts above the buildings in the carpark.

around the Quay are various old bits and bobs to create a great atmosphere of past times.

The ship was made in India, so they sent one to guard her.

I took too many photo’s for one report, so tomorrow we’ll go aboard.

    That ship makes me think in so many adventures, I guess that’s because Stevenson’s stories; and yes it’s beautiful from any angle 🙂

  3. Very cool series. Very interesting angles, but … the color is special. Blue and orange is magic, and there is something extra in your pictures. Something like a 3D effect. Looking forward to see part 2, Reinhold

    1. Cheers Mike, check out the next post when you have a mo, I did the ship interior. Also not sure I mentioned it in the blog, but the houses opposite have been converted into a ships interior and you can go in and have a sea battle going on around you, good fun! Though probably not so much in real life!
