STS Lord Nelson is one of only two tall ships in the world designed to allow those of all physical abilities to sail side-by-side as equals.
Launched in , Lord Nelson was the first tall ship in the world to be designed and built to enable people of all physical abilities to sail side by side on equal terms.
She offers anything from introductory day sails to two-week voyages and even long ocean passages throughout the year. In Lord Nelson undertook her most ambitious adventure with disabled and able bodied crews, a circumnavigation of the world.
Lord Nelson's mission was so successful that the JST then launched their second ship SV Tenacious in and together these truly unique tall ships have now taken over wheelchair users, blind people, amputees, people with cerebral palsy and 1, with hearing impairments to sea for what can only be described as life-changing adventures.
Visitors will able to descend into the base of the ship at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard following its unveiling on August 24, when both the ship and dockyard are set to reopen after coronavirus lockdown measures are eased.
It may just give the public a sense of what it must have been like on board the vessel in which Nelson famously fought, and defeated, the Spanish and French fleets during the Battle of Trafalgar in Structural engineers noticed four years ago that HMS Victory was slowly falling backwards, away from the bowsprit - the ship's front end - and water was getting into the hull.
It required metal props to be fitted due to the historic vessel's deck sinking towards its keel a ship's backbone by a fifth of an inch 0. For the first time in years, Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory will be viewable from below - thanks to the installation of metal props pictured and the completion of an under-hull walkway.

In , visitors to the HMS Victory were able to walk around Nelson's cabin for the first time, thanks to the major refurbishment project. It meant they could ascend onto the Poop Deck to view Victory's surroundings in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, walk around Nelson's Great Cabin as well as see Captain Hardy's Cabin displayed for the first time as a working captain's accommodation.
On the Orlop Deck, the area was simplified to prevent over-sentimentalising the legend of Nelson, with the Devis painting of 'The Death of Nelson' removed for conservation and display off the ship.
The length of the visitor route was increased by an estimated 80 per cent thanks to the revamp. The current HMS Victory was launched in and commissioned in It was used in two battles on the French island of Ushant in and as well as the battle of Cape St Vincent near Portugal in Above, the props - which will monitor the ship's weight distribution and 'mimic the variable pressures of the sea' and provide 'early warning of faults or weaknesses'.
The National Museum of the Royal Navy and BAE Systems described the under-hull walkway - which will be unveiled to the public on August 24 - as a 'major milestone' in the ship's renovation.
The finishing touches to HMS Victory were made years ago in Chatham Dock before she set to sea and went on to cover herself in glory at the Battle of Trafalgar.
She was built from 6, trees, 90 per cent of which were oak - the equivalent of acres of woodlands. HMS Victory has 37 sails flown from three masts and it would carry 23 spare sails during battle.
The vessel served for a total of 47 years - a period of time seldom matched by any modern warship. He believed that this made the ships' magazines vulnerable to plunging fire from long range.
Modifications to the sisters before were relatively minor. In the number of 3-pounders was reduced to four in Agamemnon and two in Lord Nelson.
In — a rangefinder was installed of the roof of the forward turret in both ships and another was added to the spotting top in Agamemnon. The following year Lord Nelson had her spotting top modified to accommodate one as well.
In — the ship had an additional rangefinder added to her bridge. The remaining 3-pounders were removed from the ships in — as were the rooftop and bridge rangefinders.
A pair of pounders were removed from the after superstructure in exchange for a pair of 3-pounder Hotchkiss guns on high-angle mounts.
In —, four pounders were removed from the forward superstructure in Agamemnon while Lord Nelson only lost two. That ship lost two more from her aft superstructure in Early in the Admiralty decided that the Navy needed a radio-controlled target ship to properly train gunnery officers.
It then limited all gunnery practice against the target ships to a maximum of 6-inch shells. Agamemnon was selected as the target ship in and was modified to suit her new role, including the installation of wireless equipment.
She was disarmed and her 9. Most of her internal openings were plated over and much internal equipment was removed. Construction of the ships was seriously delayed when their main-gun turrets were transferred to HMS Dreadnought , then under construction, to allow her to be finished more quickly.
Lord Nelson became flagship of the vice-admiral commanding the Nore Division of the Home Fleet at the beginning of , but became a private ship in early After the First World War began later that year, the sisters were assigned to the Channel Fleet, with Lord Nelson becoming the fleet flagship.
The fleet was initially tasked with covering the passage of the British Expeditionary Force across the English Channel.
Both ships were transferred to the Mediterranean in to support Allied forces in the Dardanelles Campaign and to help blockade the German battlecruiser Goeben.
Lord Nelson became flagship of the Dardanelles Squadron, later redesignated as the Eastern Mediterranean Squadron in January and then the Aegean Squadron in August , a few months after her arrival.
The sisters participated in numerous bombardments of Turkish forts and positions between their arrival in February and May during which they were slightly damaged by Turkish guns.
Agamemnon was withdrawn to Malta for repairs that lasted several months while Lord Nelson was repaired locally. Lord Nelson was mostly based in Salonica , Greece, while Agamemnon was mainly based at Mudros on the island of Lemnos , although they sometimes alternated.
The latter ship shot down the German Zeppelin LZ85 during a bombing mission over Salonica in mid When Yavuz Sultan Selim and Midilli attempted to sortie into the Mediterranean at the beginning of , neither battleship was able to reach Imbros before the Ottoman ships sank the two monitors based there during the Battle of Imbros.
While heading towards Mudros, the ships entered a minefield ; Midilli sank after striking multiple mines and Yavuz Sultan Selim struck several, but was able to withdraw back to the Dardanelles.
On 30 October the Ottoman Empire signed the Armistice of Mudros on board Agamemnon and she participated in the occupation of Constantinople the following month.
Agamemnon remained there until she returned home in March , while Lord Nelson spent a short time in the Black Sea before returning two months later.
Both ships were reduced to reserve upon their arrival. Lord Nelson was sold for scrap in June , but Agamemnon was converted into a radio-controlled target ship in — She was sold for scrap in her turn in early , the last surviving British pre-dreadnought.
