Wooden ship takes shape

6th February 1998 at 00:00
Able-bodied and disabled people over 16 can embark on voyages of adventure aboard the Lord Nelson, a tall ship, berthed at Jubilee Yard, Woolston, Southampton.

It is owned by the Jubilee Sailing Trust, a charity which aims to promote integration. A second ship, a wooden 65metre barque, is being built - the largest wooden ship to be built in Britain this century. The JST has started an education programme for eight to 13-year-olds. This includes free entry to the shipyard to watch the ship take shape, and applied science activities.

There is an accompanying education pack. Details: Pam Taylor, education officer, tel: 01703 449108 or Website http:www.jst.org.uk; bookings: 01703 449138.
