No. 3 Dry Dock, 1820; No. 4 Dry Dock, 1840
Scheduled Ancient Monuments
The dry docks were used for both shipbuilding and ship repair. During the age of sail the Navy Board built more dry docks than any other country. Originally they were built of timber and needed frequent repair and re-building.
No. 3 dry dock, now home to HM Submarine Ocelot, was the first of Chatham's dry docks to be built in stone. It was designed by the civil engineer John Rennie (1761 1821), along with the South Dock Pumping Station. No.4 dry dock, where HMS Gannet is now berthed, was constructed in 1840 and enlarged in 1908 to accommodate larger ships.
Both dry docks were built in the same manner with floor and sides of granite blocks supported underground by an inverted brick arch.
