Conservators work in the dry berth under the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, London, as they apply the finishing touches to a display of over 80 figureheads.


The famous Greenwich landmark the Cutty Sark will reopen to the public this week after the completion of a restoration project costing £50 million which followed the fire that nearly destroyed her five years ago.

Restorers have painstakingly conserved and pieced back together almost 90 per cent of the 143-year-old tea clipper ship.
