And was Darwin's Beagle builded here, amongst those brutal blocks of flats?

The Beagle Project's Peter McGrath, FCD, has a great post about visiting the Woolwich Dockyard where HMS Beagle was built. He was accompanied by a couple of other Beagle groupies. Photos and a radio programme are to follow.

I am consumed with jealousy yet again.

Postscript: Peter's photos are now online.

[For any non-Brits out there, the title of this post is a reference to a poem by William Blake, which was turned into a rather magnificent yet jingoistic hymn.]

Writer and photographer Richard Carter, FCD is the founder of the Friends of Charles Darwin. He lives in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. WebsiteFacebookTwitterNewsletter
