The 1805 Club was founded in 1990 to care for the memorials of the Georgian sailing navy. They are a vital yet often neglected part of Britain's naval heritage. No other organisation is dedicated to their preservation. We:


  1. Conserve monuments and memorials relating to seafaring people of the Georgian era and in particular Admiral Lord Nelson.

    For more information on Admiral Lord Nelson please visit The 1805 Club's site www.admiralnelson.org.

  2. Promote and publish research into the Royal Navy of the Georgian period, and especially Admiral Lord Nelson.

  3. Organise cultural and historical events for the enjoyment and edification of our membership and the public in general.

Nelson - ON THIS DAY - July

17th July 1797: Nelson prepares for the attack of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 'Each ship to make as many iron ram-rods as possible, it being found that the wooden ones are very liable to break when used in a hurry.'

18 July 1796: Nelson to Admiral Sir John Jervis, Earl St Vincent during the blockade off Leghorn(Livorno)., "I have only now to beg, that whenever you think the enemy will face you on water, you will send for me; for my heart would break to be absent at such a glorious time."
