Re: HMS Northumberland
HMS Trincomalee 1817 is still afloat in Hartlepool. When I was vice chairman on the committee it was well maintained. The Royal navy disowned it when steam arrived and changed the name to Foudroyant for over 100 years. It was rescued and part rebuilt a lot in Hartlepool. Today the Royal navy has taken it back. However, they can't take it anywhere as the Dock gates aren't wide enough to let it happen! Well worth a visit but not as good as it was. Typical!
