Ship ahoy

RRS Discovery open again on July 1

The bowsprit is loaded onto the RRS Discovery as part of a renovation project

When this rigger was snapped taking a break from work on the historic RRS Discovery, little did he know he’d be turned into the vessel’s own live LEGO scene, complete with pieces.

The ship, now a major visitor attraction in Dundee, has been undergoing several months of restoration work as specialist shipbuilders repaired and refurbished more than 600 pieces of her masts and rigging, some of them weighing up to a tonne.

Putting the ship back together again is not unlike a LEGO or Airfix project. And that’s just what the pieces resembled when this photograph was taken from up high on the ship, complete with a mini-figure and all the pieces.

The rigger, who wishes to remain anonymous, is part of a team from Gloucester shipyard T. Nielsen, which not only restored Discovery’s pieces but is making her shipshape again.

Dundee Heritage Trust, which runs RRS Discovery at Dundee’s waterfront, plans to reopen the ship to the public on July 1. The award-winning visitor centre remains open in the meantime, with half-price admission to its exhibition, including a café and gift shop.

RRS Discovery’s repair programme was funded partly by a crowdfunding campaign, which raised more than £40,000 and was fronted by TV presenter Lorraine Kelly.

Paul Jennings, executive director of Dundee Heritage Trust, said:

“We’re tickled that our riggers, who have done a tremendous job making Discovery shipshape again, inadvertently created their own little toy scene. It reminds us of an Airfix or LEGO set.

  29. My theory is that little finger is plotting to marry Sansa in a plot to build forces in the north ,take the iron throne but little finger
    tells Jon that he loves Sansa as he loved Catelyn. He’s in love with her
    but i believe that he just meant it as I love her just as much as i
    did Catelyn which he would if she was his child.
