The Hartlepool Report~part 1

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.

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.

  1. 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
