Chatham World Heritage

Chatham's bid for World Heritage Status


Chatham is the world's most complete example of an Historic Dockyard from the age of sail - a time when Dockyards were the industrial centres of Europe.
Chatham Dockyard and its defences are now on the UK Government's shortlist of potential World Heritage Sites.

Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust, English Heritage, Medway Council and the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA) are financing and backing this World Heritage Site application.

The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, Kent ME4 4TE, England
