The Historic Dockyards of Chatham, UK


For over 400 years, England's Royal Navy depended on the Chatham Shipyard for most of its combat ships. Located on the Medway River in County Kent southeast of London, the shipyard was built in the years following the English Reformation.  Chatham produced over 500 ships for the Royal Navy before closing in 1984; it's now a museum. Seen in this drone video by oszibus, Chatham was the target of the famous Raid on the Medway in 1667, during the Second Anglo Dutch War, when the Dutch ships dealt the Royal Navy one of its worst-ever defeats.
