HMS Warrior - Portsmouth

HMS Warrior (1860) (also known as Vernon III and Oil Fuel Hulk C77) was the world's first ocean-going iron-hulled armoured battleship. She was built for the Royal Navy as a counter to the first ironclad warship, the French battleship Gloire (launched 1859). When she was launched, the 4.5-inch thick wrought iron armoured belt meant that she was impervious to all naval cannon in service at that time, and she was easily the most powerful warship in the world. The only significant vulnerability was the lack of armour around the rudder.

She was propelled by both sails and steam - her coal capacity of 853 tons was insufficient alone for extended cruising. The screw could be winched up clear of the water to reduce drag, although in practice the screw was run at low speed when cruising, this having the same drag-reducing effect.

This is the best photo of the engine room we could find, it must be rather cramped in there.

HMS Warrior - Internal Bulkhead

There was a black mysterious hole down below decks, I pointed the camera inside it, the flash went off and it shows what might be an internal bulkhead.

Fantastic

Great site and pictures - Robert (Liverpool)
