Digital Resources

... access to online resources with the Historic Dockyard Chatham

We have developed these resources to enable you to access a wide range of material from Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust. As more of our archive is digitised, it will be possible to share these resources through the Learning pages of our website.

Digital Resource Timelines

Each of the following timelines, based on a theme or period of history, will give you access to images, video and audio files held by Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust and associated heritage institutions.

Since the closure of the Dockyard in 1984, Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust has built up a physical collection of material. We are now in a position to digitise elements of our collection to help tell the story of this amazing place.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – Notice to Visitors

As with the rest of the world, Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust is closely monitoring the situation around the global pandemic of COVID-19.

It is with sadness that following UK Government guidelines we have closed our visitor attraction to the public until further notice.

This closure also extends to Call the Midwife Official Location Tours.

Whilst outside of our control, we apologise for any inconvenience caused during this difficult time and would like to thank all our visitors for their understanding during this challenging period.
