Maritime Anchors

Maritime Anchors

A collection of quirky anchors showing our naval design skills.

Location: Park Row, Greenwich

Description: In the far North-Eastern corner of The Maritime Museum's leafy lawn and grounds (away from the tourist gate) is an impressive collection of anchors from ancient (well 1805) to modern, large to massive, clean to well-barnacled.

Each has some info about it's history and design, well worth a lookylikey. Free to wander and ponder around.
