The construction of the Dockyard

Gib Heritage Talk

Gibraltar Museum has announced the first in its programme of Heritage Talks for 2005, commemorating two anniversaries: 200 years of Trafalgar and 75 years of the Gibraltar Museum.

The first lecture in the series, ‘The Construction of the Gibraltar Dockyard’, by Professor Clive Finlayson, will take place on Thursday 7th April at 2030 hours at the John Mackintosh Hall. A Museum spokesman said:

“In his lecture Professor Finlayson, Head of the Heritage Division, will trace the history and development of the Gibraltar dockyard with specific reference to the events that led to its construction. The construction process, which resulted in extensive tunneling and quarrying, and the impact this had on the environment and on the civil population will also be highlighted.”

“The lectures on the series are open to all who wish to attend and are free of charge. Anybody wishing to receive an email alert informing them of upcoming lectures please email with ‘Heritage Lectures’ in the subject line.

Should you require further information, please contact the Gibraltar Museum Media and Public Relations Officer on telephone 49161. Alternatively email”
