HMS Mercia

Had the displeasure of driving through Coventry last week.

Came accross a red traffic sign "HMS MERCIA". Nearly crashed!

Obviously had to follow it, took to me to what looked like a huge abandoned factory/warehouse. Certainly ex MOD by the wire etc.

Googled it and found it was an RNR place. What went on there? Shipbuilding?!!!!!!!
Was "rationalised" to be merged with HMS Forward. Forward (or Backward to it's friends) is still in existance but in Brum rather than Coventry.
