THE plan to lift five Tudor guns through the roof of the old Mary Rose Museum today has been postponed.
As reported, five deck guns which sank with the Mary Rose in 1545 were due to be removed by a crane this morning and taken to the new £35m museum being built around Henry VIII’s warship at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
But the big lift was called off last night because of the weather forecast for rain.
A Historic Dockyard spokeswoman said: ‘They need three clear days without wind and rain as it’s one day to take the roof off, one day removing the guns and one day putting the roof back on.’
A new date to remove the guns will be confirmed in due course, she said.
