No.2 Dry Dock, 1856
Scheduled Ancient Monument
This was the site of the Old Single Dock where HMS Victory was built and launched in 1765.
As ship building changed from wood to iron and the size of vessels increased, there was a need to extend the dock. The dock was rebuilt in stages from the 1820s. The final works to lengthen the dock and rebuild it in stone occurred between 1855 and 1856. In 1860 this dock was used to construct HMS Achilles , the first iron battleship to be built at a Royal Dockyard, a sister ship to Warrior, which still survives today at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
