No.5 and No.6 Dock, Basin No.1, Portsmouth Dockyard - Portsmouth, City of (UA)

Docks 5 and 6 are part of a complex of late C18 and early C19 ship building and repairing docks with associated quay walls and mooring fixtures. The docks have stepped sides with flights of steps and haulage slides; some retain later metal gates. Dock 6 is suffering from rotation, and mortar joints on the stonework treads on the north side have opened up; it is also vulnerable to water penetration action and the stonework is spalling. Dock 5 has recently been flooded due to failure of the gates and is vulnerable to algal growth and saturation of stonework with risk of accelerated decay.
