Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Royal Dockyard was established in 1512 by King Henry VIII for the construction of his flagship "Great Harry". The Royal Arsenal (also known as the Woolwich Arsenal) was also a Tudor foundation for the manufacture and testing of arms. The Dockyard was expanded and by the 1840s was constructing steam ships. However, in 1869 it was closed. The Royal Arsenal was a large employer during the Second World War but was subsequently reduced in size.
