Nestled within The Historic Dockyard Chatham, The Master Ropemakers longstanding tradition of creating quality ropes spans over four centuries right on this very site.

Chatham’s skilled Master Ropemakers have a wealth of knowledge and experience and provide rope for a range of uses, which include anything from rigging the world’s mightiest historic vessels, to fenders and battle ropes as well as playing a vital supporting role for a wide range of film and theatre productions.

We use natural and synthetic fibres in the manufacture and our team of craftsmen and women not only produce the rope but work with it: splicing, knotting, net making and creating bespoke products to customer requirements.

Discover our range of ropes products available and delve into the storied legacy of our impressive ropewalk and associated structures. Find out how Master Ropemakers can cater to your rope requirements with a tradition of quality that endures through the ages.
