The Thompson Graving Dock, Belfast

The 268m (880ft) long Thompson Graving Dock was constructed between 1903 and 1911 to cater for the new class of White Star liners under construction in Belfast - notably the Olympic and the Titanic. When constructed it was the largest graving dock in the world. It continued to be used for ship repair purposes until 2002 and is now preserved as a tourist attraction.
