Lyttelton Graving Dock

Opened in 1883, Lyttelton’s graving dock, still in regular use after more than a century, is one of the country’s most important structures of marine engineering heritage. Its length illustrates the size of the sailing clippers it was built to service - much less beamy than modern boats.

The designer was harbour board engineer C. Napier Bell.
