4 Graving Dock near Titanic Belfast in Belfast, Northern Ireland

It is fascinating to see the caisson at the Hamilton Dock in the Titanic Quarter. This is a large, hull-shaped chamber used during shipbuilding. Water was kept out of the pit until the lower portion of the vessel was constructed. It was then flooded to allow the ship to float and be towed. This graving dock was built by Harland & Wolff in 1867, six years after the company was founded.
