Default HMS Plymouth, interior pictures - September 2012 - 01-09-2012, 05:49

Visted with Shiv, the flu, vicki and leaf1471


I first visited the ship in January of this year to find it locked up tight. After hearing that it was open, i had been meaning to get back on board to photograph the inside, but other things in Liverpool became a distraction. I was glad to get on board the ship before she was scrapped, as she holds some fond memories for me. I first visited her when she was a museum at the age of 8. We spent 3 hours on the ship after taking ages to figure out how to actually get on the deck, but i wasn't to be beaten, as a return visit isn't really on the cards! There is so much to photograph on board and i really wish that i had taken more pictures.

history

HMS Plymouth is a Rothesay class frigate, which served in the United Kingdom Royal Navy from 1959 to 1988. She was named after the English city of Plymouth. Since decommissioning as a warship, HMS Plymouth has been preserved, and opened to the public at various United Kingdom ports. HMS Plymouth was decommissioned on the 28th April 1988, and was the last Type 12 in service. After decommissioning, the Warship Preservation Trust acquired the ship for preservation. On 6 February 2006, the Warship Preservation Trust closed, citing financial difficulties and, by default, is currently owned by the Mersey Docks and Harbor Company (MDHC) following the demise of the Trust. The ship has been sold in the last few weeks and is awaiting dismantling.
