Cutty Sark is a composite built clipper ship, constructed in Dumbarton on the River Clyde between 1869-1870. Since 1957 the ship has been on public display in a dry berth in Greenwich. The Cutty Sark Conservation Project (2006-2012) undertook to conserve as much of the original fabric as possible to ensure that the ship remained open to the public for a minimum of 50 years before further major works are required.
