Chatham Dockyard from 1815 to 1865 changed dramatically; metal working skills replacing wood working skills as dockyards adapted to the use of steam and iron. The success of the armoured frigate HMS Achilles, the first iron ship to be constructed in a royal dockyard, ensured the yard was at the forefront of technological change.
