The Pound's scrapyard is situated in Tipner, either side of the M275 entering Portsmouth.
The sites main use was for stripping and scrapping old ships, including many US navy ships and equipment
The site has contained ships, ferrys, 2 ancient submarines, amphibious vehicles, and numerous old concrete pontoons, many of which have fallen aparts and lay around the shores.
Currently left in the yard are two US Navy LARCs (Lighter, Amphibious Resupply, Cargo, 60 ton), one chain ferry from Falmouth in Cornwall run by King Harry ferrys which was replaced in 2006, and a few other unnamed wrecks.
It is also home to the RFA Galle which used to be part of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, but is now grounded and rusting. The bow is a good 30' high with opening doors, and unscalable bar a few ropes hanging down. There is also an access hatch cut into the side but is securely locked.
