Old Royal Naval College

The Old Royal Naval College is the architectural centrepiece of Maritime Greenwich.

It is also a World Heritage Site, and has been described by UNESCO as being of “outstanding universal value” and the “finest and most dramatically sited architectural and landscape ensemble in the British Isles”.

The buildings, designed by Christopher Wren and built between 1696 and 1712, were originally constructed to serve as the Royal Hospital for Seamen. The hospital closed in 1869, and from 1873 to 1998 it became the Royal Naval College.

Since 1998, the historic site has been managed by the Greenwich Foundation, which has introduced a variety of new uses and activities.

DBR Leadwork has carried out extensive roofing and drainage projects at The Old Royal Naval College over the past 10 years including new sand cast lead roofs, improved drainage systems and increasing sump capacity, overflow installations, slate repairs and roof substrate repairs.
