The Historic Dockyard is hosting an exhibition of paintings capturing workers building new Royal Navy ships at BAE shipyards.

Renowned Scottish artist Lachlan Goudie has been chronicling the construction of the new generation of world-leading Type 45 destroyers and the monolithic Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers.

The exhibition runs until June. Go to
