English Woolwich Dockyard

Woolwich Dockyard (formally H.M. Dockyard, Woolwich, also known as The King's Yard, Woolwich) was an English naval dockyard along the river Thames at Woolwich in north-west Kent, where many ships were built from the early 16th century until the late 19th century. William Camden called it 'the Mother Dock of all England'. By virtue of the size and quantity of vessels built there, Woolwich Dockyard is described as having been 'among the most important shipyards of seventeenth-century Europe'. During the Age of Sail, the yard continued to be used for shipbuilding and repair work more or less consistently; in the 1830s a specialist factory within the dockyard oversaw the introduction of steam power for ships of the Royal Navy. At its largest extent it filled a 56-acre site north of Woolwich Church Street, between Warspite Road and New Ferry Approach; 19th-century naval vessels were fast outgrowing the yard, however, and it eventually closed in 1869 (though a large part of the site remained in military hands for a further century). The former dockyard area is now partly residential, partly industrial, with remnants of its historic past having been restored.

German Woolwich Dockyard

Die Woolwich Dockyard war eine britische Marinewerft, welche 1512 von Heinrich VIII. zusammen mit der Marinewerft Deptford zum Bau des Flaggschiffes Henry Grâce à Dieu eingerichtet wurde.

Zu Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts war London ein Zentrum der königlichen und kirchlichen Macht. Heinrich VIII. erweiterte Londons Bedeutung noch durch die Einrichtung der Royal Dockyards, Woolwich und Deptford, am Südufer der Themse, um sie in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Tower of London zu haben. Dadurch wurden Londons Verbindungen mit dem Meer und der gerade im Entstehen begriffenen Royal Navy verstärkt.

Spanish Astillero de Woolwich

El astillero de Woolwich (en inglés, Woolwich Dockyard) fue, de 1512 hasta su cierre en 1869,[1]​ un importante astillero militar naval,[2]​ uno de los tres astilleros del estuario del río Támesis,[3]​ siendo los otros dos él de Deptford (1513-1869) y Chatham (1567-1894).

Ubicado en la orilla sur, es decir, en la margen derecha del río,[4]​ al sudeste de Londres,[5]​ fue fundado por Enrique VIII de Inglaterra con el fin de construir su buque insignia, el Henry Grace à Dieu, la carraca más grande de la época.

Ubicado muy cerca de su palacio de Placentia en Greenwich, fue originalmente conocido como The King's Yard, Woolwich (Astillero del Rey).

Con el tiempo, parte de sus terrenos se destinarían al Royal Arsenal, y donde más adelante, en 1721, se fundaría la Real Academia Militar.[1]​

Hasta 1660, todos los navíos de línea de primera clase ingleses, es decir, navíos con tripulaciones de más de 400 hombres, fueron construidos en Woolwich.[6]​

English Woolwich Dockyard

Historic area for both ship and weapon-making. The Arsenal (of which the football club derives its name from) is little left, although there is an Artillery Museum and parade ground with attached garrison for soldiers which is sometimes used. Was used for hosting several events for the Olympics of 2012.
