    Old post I know but just thought I would share our experience there, it was probably one of the longest visits we have ever spent on a location, 6 or 7 hours long we spent wondering about different passage ways. sadly the ship is now scrapped. This place was by far one of the best explores we have done, for one its a battleship & two there was so much to explore that even after spending hours in there I don't feel we got to see everything. The top deck was pretty cool to see the old guns and rigs around the ship but the most interesting parts was below decks, there was a lot of different passage ways. It was pretty cool seeing the little tuck shop with all the old styled package designs of some of our favourites.

    History:
    HMS Plymouth was a Royal Navy Rothesay-class frigate. Named after the English city of Plymouth, she was commissioned in 1959. Plymouth was one of 12 ships built in the new Rothesay class; which began replacing the ageing Whitby in the mid 1950s.

    Dang i was hoping you had pushed into it a bit further in that amount of time.

    When we went i went off looking around the top couple of decks which were good but as soon as i dropped down to the lower decks i got told we were leaving. It was much better on the lower decks, not messed around with at all and loads to see you never see in reports!

    Cheers for sharing this mate, you got some decent shots, I did have some pictures of her in the Turkish scrap yard and then cut into sections, I found them on a navy forum, but sady cant find them at the moment to share with you.
    Cool bit of history gone for good.
