ROYAL DOCKYARD

SOUTH YARD

As from November 1903 the area surrounding the First Dock became known as South Yard and the Keyham Steam Yard became North Yard.

The principal entrance was through Fore Street Gate but there was also an entrance at Mutton Cove.  Just inside the Fore Street Gate stood the Royal Dockyard Chapel, until it was destroyed in 1941.

Principal buildings in South Yard, which is now a conservation area, include The Terrace, the King's Hill Gazebo, Slip Number 1, the Shallow Dock, the Police and Cashiers Offices, the East Rope House, and the West Rope House.

[Others will be added shortly].
