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.

 

The 1805 Club is a registered charity No. 1071871
