Cooper Point

The historic heart of Stanley

We began planning on how to best make use of the reclaimed land to the north of the museum after pitting trials revealed that the land is too unstable to build on. 

We hope to - with the help of the community - develop the land as a community area - an extension of what we already have at the dockyard. 

The land will feature large sections of the Charles Cooper - including the rather splendid bow (pictured left).  If anyone hasn't guessed it yet, this is why we aptly named the land, 'Cooper Point.' 

We also hope to feature a compass rose, a stepping stone timeline as well as information boards that will tell our visitors about our  rich maritime history.  If funds allow we also hope to have other features such as a ship's wheel at the head of the point and a tower viewer.
