Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust

As a registered charity, Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust's primary charitable objectives are:

  • to secure for the public benefit the preservation of The Historic Dockyard at Chatham in a manner appropriate to its archaeological, historical and architectural importance
  • to promote and foster for the public benefit a wide knowledge and understanding of the archaeological, historical and architectural significance of The Historic Dockyard
As a registered museum, the Trust aims to collect, study, and interpret to the public items and materials connected with the history of:
  • the design and construction of warships for the Royal Navy
  • the men and women who worked at the Royal Dockyard at Chatham
  • the Royal Navy’s use of the Medway and the surrounding area, including the history of the Chatham Port Division
In carrying out these objectives, the Trust recognises:
  • that visitors to and users of The Historic Dockyard are fundamental to its purpose
  • that the economic re-use of the site and its buildings is fundamental to achieving its objectives via a strategy of preservation through re-use
  • that its staff and volunteers play a vital role in providing levels of service and customer care which meet and exceed expectation
