Formerly the home to a range of specialist underwater warfare organisations, HMS VERNON provided a significant contribution to the defence of the nation for several centuries through the many skilled personnel who worked, trained and were based within her walls. 

The two tonne, one-and-a-quarter life-size Vernon Monument stands in 1.2 metres of water in Pool B at Gunwharf Quays where it will be seen by a footfall of 8 million per year.  The Monument commemorates the mine warfare & diving heritage of HMS VERNON and celebrates all those involved in mine warfare, be it mine design, mining, minesweeping and mine hunting, as well as service diving and naval bomb & mine disposal - past, present and future.  It also acts as a fitting memorial to those who have died while engaged in such activities and is a monument to all who served in the establishment and its attached units.
