1834 The Dock-Yard. Instructions for the visitor wishing to visit the Dock-Yard - from A Portsmouth Guide Book.
“Persons visiting this place should be at the entrance gate by 10 O’clock in the morning. At the Office there, the Warden’s consent to see the Yard must be requested; which is never refused, unless the visitor be a foreigner. This consent obtained, a guide will be sent with the party, who will point out, nearly in the order here noticed, the several objects of curiosity in this truly wonderful place.”
