drydocked as part of the ship's long-term preservation. In 1982 she was docked at Tilbury, and in June 1999 Belfast was towed to Portsmouth. "I haven't seen the Belfast moved in 40+ years of walking across London Bridge, which is a little strange. She is in a specially-dredged mooring in the Pool of London, which took cargo ships up until the 1950s/60s, but I can't believe that the mud hasn't built up underneath her keel. Still, she isn't moored quayside but a little way out from the South Bank.
