Help us save HMS Monmouth at the end of its military life. We're hoping to bring her to Newport, S.Wales to be used as a tourist attraction.

Project aim

Within 10yrs HMS Monmouth will be scrapped by the Royal Navy. We need your help to conduct a feasibility study into mooring her in S.Wales.

About the project

Within the next 10yrs the Royal Navy will sell HMS Monmouth (The Black Duke) for scrap value.  We would like to save the frigate by mooring it up in South Wales.

Our plan will see HMS Monmouth become a tourist attraction that houses a very unique floating hotel, restaurant, meeting ,conferencing & wedding venue with educational learning facilities.

As you might imagine,  these things always start with a feasibility study.  Engineers will need to test tidal heights, suitable locations and revenue generation for a sustainable project.

An example of this type of project is HMS Belfast currently moored up on the Thames in London.
