The ledgers in our collection provide an insight into Chatham’s role as an operational Royal Dockyard and the workforce that sustained it.
They include Victorian-era lists of hired workmen of all trades , a record of some of the first women working in the Ropery and Sail & Colour Loft, salary lists, accident books, movement logs, post-war ship repairs and a small collection of apprentice lists.

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.
