Chatham Dockyard, Dry Dock 3, HMS Ocelot
No 3 Dry Dock, the middle dock of the three at Chatham, was the first of Chatham's dry docks to be built in stone. It dates from 1820.

No 3 Dry Dock now houses HM Submarine Ocelot. Launched from No 7 covered slip in May 1962, Ocelot was the last warship to be built for the Royal Navy at Chatham. She remained in service until 1981.
Chatham Dockyard
The Chatham Dockyard's history dates back to 16th century and earlier. For centuries it was at the forefront of shipbuilding, and industrial and architectural technology and for 414 years, it provided over 500 ships to the Royal Navy. At its height the site covered over 400 acres.

The dockyard closed in 1984, and the now a 84 acre section of the site is a visitor attraction managed by the Chatham Historic Dockyard
Trust.
