BROOK PUMPThe Old Brook Pumping Station in Solomons Road, Chatham has been completely refurbished.

The station has undergone extensive structural repairs, after a structural survery reveals subsidence was causing the front porch to lean forward and large cracks to appear in the walls. The survey revealed the combination of inadequate foundations and poor soil was the cause. The front porch has now been underpinned. Work during the six-year project included temporary support for the building, new foundations with reinforced concrete, plus replacement doors and ceiling, new signage, landscaping and decorative mouldings.

Things get spooky, sparkly, and wacky this Autumn at The Historic Dockyard Chatham, as visitors explore the eerie and infamous through a range of exciting family activities and a new temporary exhibition. More

The Historic Dockyard Chatham has once again teamed up with Southern Water to offer free of charge practical family learning workshops on Sunday afternoons through to Spring next year.

Mighty Missiles

Inspired by a visit to the missiles on board the Second World War destroyer HMS CAVALIER, this workshop will challenge participants to design and fire their own rocket. How can Newton’s Laws of Motion help? What impact will elevation have on the ability to hit enemy targets?

Sneaky Ships

Disguising ships to avoid the enemy has always been a challenge in wartime. Participants will design and make a ‘stealth boat’ that can’t be detected by sound, sight or heat. They will then use the underwater sonar in the dockyard’s testing tank facility and state of the art thermal imaging camera to see how successful they have been!

Handy Hydraulics

Participants can design and make their own Dockyard Crane using hydraulics and then discover how strong the crane is by finding out how heavy a load it can lift.

Water Works

Based on the fascinating work of sponsor Southern Water, this programme looks at the impact of use of water on the environment and allows participants to build a water butt and water filter.

This FREE fun, fascinating and educational 4-workshop series can be booked by calling please call 01634 823800 or emailing smajor@chdt.org.uk.
