In 2005 the Art Fund gave the Historic Dockyard Chatham half of the total £60,000 needed to acquire the Maquette for the warship HMS Queen Charlotte, launched at Chatham in 1790. The figurehead shows Queen Charlotte, the consort of King George III, and probably required royal approval before the full size figurehead was made.
Elias Martin's 1777–8 landscape, A view of Chatham Dockyard, depicts the dockyard from the Rochester side of Whitehall Creek. Art Funded in 1993, it is one of a small number of views showing the dockyard in the period before the Napoleonic Wars.
