HMS Trincomalee (Hartlepool)

HMS Trincomalee is a popular attraction at Hartlepool in Cleveland.

She has the distinction of being the oldest British fighting ship still afloat, having been built as a frigate in Bombay in 1817. Later, she served in the Pacific and in the Arctic Circle

From 1898 she served as a training ship, having been renamed "Foudroyant".

Today, however, she has been fully restored, and under her original name is a credit to the maritime town of Hartlepool.
