    Me and a friend got on board last week , the conning tower is full of pigeons and the shit they produce but lower down into the Sub it still seems very clean. I know it's been done a few times in the past but I've wanted to see this thing for ages so it was great to get in at last :).

    Known as Foxtrot B-39 by NATO this submarine
    prowled the worlds oceans for 27 years, it was built in 1967 and was
    in active service until 1994.
    The submarine was used to train mainly Libyan, Cuban, and Indian
    submariners and spent it’s time playing cat and mouse with NATO.

    The submarine arrived in London in 1994 under command of its Captain
    Vitalij Burda who had commanded the ship for 23 years.
    It stayed at Long’s Wharf, Thames barrier, as a museum until 1998when it was moved to Folkestone. It was open in Folkestone until 2004 when it was moved to the River Medway in Rochester. It is currently waiting to be
    re-homed and hopefully opened to the public again. Unfortunately the
    submarine is listing to the side as there is a hole in one of the ballast tanks.
