HMS Caroline, the 100-year-old naval vessel and sole survivor of the WW1 Battle of Jutland, docked in Belfast’s Alexandra Dock has been announced as a finalist in the #NationalLotteryAwards 2018.
The ship, which opened in 2016, followed by the completion of a visitor and exhibition centre in the restored Pump House and refurbishment of Alexandra Dock earlier this year, was the recipient of the largest ever Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £11.5m in 2014.
It is the only project from Northern Ireland as a finalist in the Heritage category of the Awards.
Since the ship opened as a discovery site, Caroline has welcomed intrepid explorers, curious to know what life was like during The Battle of Jutland, the largest sea battle of the First World War. #HMSCarolinepics
