Chatham Dockyard makes World Heritage shortlist

Chatham Dockyard and its defences in Kent have made it on to a list of 11 being put forward by the UK government to UNESCO as potential World Heritage sites.

UNESCO is already considering Darwin’s Landscape Laboratory in Kent, which will also join the Tentative List.

Tourism and Heritage minister John Penrose said, “Few places in the world can match the wealth of wonderful heritage we have available in the UK.

“The 11 places that make up the new UK Tentative List are fantastic examples of both our cultural and natural heritage and I believe they have every chance of joining famous names like the Sydney Opera House and the Canadian Rockies to become World Heritage Sites.”
