HMS Bronington (M1115)

HMS Bronington laid up at Gilbrook Basin, West Float, Birkenhead
History
United Kingdom
Name: HMS Bronington
Launched: 19 March 1953
Identification: Pennant number: M1115
Fate: Preserved by the Bronington Trust and berthed at West Float, Birkenhead, England

HMS Bronington is a Ton-class minesweeper of the Royal Navy, launched on 19 March 1953. This mahogany-hulled minesweeper is one of the last of the "wooden walls" (wooden-hulled naval vessels).

After being decommissioned from service, the ship was purchased in January 1989 by the Bronington Trust, a registered charity, whose patron Charles, Prince of Wales, commanded this vessel in 1976.

For some time, the ship was berthed in the Manchester Ship Canal at Trafford Park, Greater Manchester, England. In 2002, she became part of the collection of the Warship Preservation Trust and moored at Birkenhead, Merseyside, England. Since the closure of the Warship Preservation Trust, she remains in storage, formerly alongside the Rothesay-class frigate HMS Plymouth, at Vittoria Dock, Birkenhead, and latterly in the West Float of Birkenhead Docks.
