HARTLEPOOL

Where a his­toric war­ship re­sides

The old­est war­ship afloat any­where in the world is now the cen­tre­piece of the His­toric Dock­yard Mu­seum in Hartlepool. She was built in Bom­bay just af­ter the Napoleonic Wars and went on to quell ri­ots in Haiti, stop a threat­ened in­va­sion of Cuba, and serve on an anti-slav­ery pa­trol. hms-trin­co­ma­lee.co.uk
