No. 8 machine shop, Dock Head Road, Chatham Dockyard - Medway (UA)

1840 former dry dock cover which was later used as a Machine Shop but is now disused. Cladding removed so the cast iron members and joints are now corroding. Applications to repair and convert it for leisure uses have been approved by the Local Authority but not yet implemented.
