Historic Quay Hartlepool UK Aug 23, 2017
The historic quay is part of The National Museum Royal Navy Hartlepool,and well worth a visit. I arrived at Hartlepool rail station, and turned to the right, there is a bridge to the right,i walked to the museum by the road roundabouts.There is a bus, which i used on returning. The National Museum Royal Navy address is Jackson Dock Hartlepool, but can be seen a long time before arriving because of the ships huge masts. There is an admission charge.-- The centre piece of the Quay is the H.M.S. Trincomalee with its large masts,and 46 guns. Using the gangway,i explored the upper deck, then the lower decks. Headroom is low so i had to mind my head on the beams. The stairs are steep ,there are lifts for the less able. The Trincomlee was built in Bombay India in 1817,and is one of Nelsons last frigates,and Europes oldest floating warship.-- Around the Quay are buildings showing various trades of the time.There are refreshment places.--Outside the museum on main road are buses to Sunderland, Durham and Hartlepool town centre etc.-- By car the museum can be accessed via the A19 north and south. There is loads of free parking on site.-- There are other Royal Navy museums up and down the UK.---This museum at Hartlepool was informative,entertaining, and well worth the addmisson fee.[ Im OAP and paid £7.]
