About This Image

The building we see today is of the 18th century but it dates back another 200years, In 1694 the building was damaged by fire and was re-built by Sir Christopher Wren. the architect of St Paul's Cathedral, London. The site has been used by the Navy since at least the beginning of the 17th century when George Villiers, the first Duke of Buckingham and Lord High Admiral of England. It now houses part of the Foreign and Commonwealth Offices of the Untied Kingdom.

I do hope you have enjoyed viewing this image and the history I have added, I would really appreciate you leaving a comment. :)

Hi! I am writing a book about Edward Thache and piracy. This image would provide a good visual aid. Can I use it and is there a fee?

An excellent architectural study. The contrast of sunlight and dark clouds adds a dramatic touch.
