The Hamilton Dock J3575 : The Hamilton drydock, Belfast (1988), currently occupied by “Titanic’s” tender the “Nomadic” J3575 : The Hamilton drydock, Belfast (2) is being enclosed. My understanding is that Harland & Wolff has won the contract to restore the vessel and that, with assistance from Lottery funding “Both would be opened as learning and interpretative shared spaces. The project would provide a context for understanding shipbuilding, and for understanding what it was like to live and work in Belfast in 1911, the year of the ship’s launch.”

The Hamilton Dock, Belfast

A dry dock entered via the Abercorn Basin and once used by Harland & Wolff for repairs to coasters etc. Long disused and now (2011) being renovated as part of the Titanic Quarter developments.

There was an application, in March 2011, for planning permission: “0435/F Hamilton Graving Dock, Queens Road, Queens Island, Belfast Restoration of former graving dock, display of former caisson gate and SS Nomadic ship in permanently dry dock. Ship to include interpretation education space, cafe & entertainments licence. Proposals to dock side to include repair to existing surfaces and new surface materials, new lighting, boundary railings and dock edge railings as well as restoration and extension of existing pump house and installation of bridge and gangways”.
